  • Hiking

Explore the area and enjoy beautiful views of Flåm! On the hiking trip to Brekkefossen waterfall you will have a grand view of the fjord and into the valley.

Start the walk from Flåm town centre on asphalt road up the valley alongside the Flåm river. After 1,5 km easy walk, we continue up the mountain side on our way to the Brekke Waterfall platform. The rocky and steep trail quickly gains elevation and soon the small city of Flåm is visible through the trees.

After about 30 minutes uphill hiking, the trail opens up on a grassy ledge, offering beautiful views of the area. Join us on this hike to get a unique insight to the local culture, history and life by the fjord!
