One of the two great attractions of Flam is a cruise on Aurlands and Naeroyfjord. It's quite expensive - 195 NOK per person one way - but it's worth it. You get the ticket as you embark - no need to make reservations for individual passengers. If you are in a hurry and don't want to spend more than that, take a bus one way. It takes only twenty minutes from Gudvangen to Flam, but you don't see much: there are two tunnels on the way - one of them 11.5 km long.
The views from the boat are stunning as it goes first along the Aurlandsfjord, which is really part of the Sognefjorden, the longest and grandest fjord in Norway. Soon you come to pass Aurland where the famous steep and winding Aurlandsvegen starts, which you will find described in some other tips.

Update: Apparently, the boat fare has gone up to 285 NOK/person since we took it.

Address: Flam harbour

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
