We were told the round trip from hotel Flamsbrygga will take 3 hours and were given a map to follow, but it didn't take as long. It took us about 1 hour to get to the top, well, the vantage point. We don't think it was the end of the trail but the rain made the rest of the hike... More

We used the local map of the area, this tour is no. 4 and describe as a moderate hike in the area, took us 2 hour not include the admire of the scenery. It was steep and a bit muddy at parts; if you have hiking sticks better take them. You have to pay attention to the sign because it... More

The hike to Brekkefossen took me almost 3 hours since I got lost hiking on my own. Perhaps, in the afternoon hike you could follow other hikers. The first hour or so was easy, the last half hour extremely rocky and steep. Then it got slushy and slippery around the woods - dangerous! The scenery at the top was amazing... More

...... but nothing special. You see this on your way up either on the train or hiking. Town itself is absolutely fabulous though. Very picturesque and quiet, a real gem of a place.

I love a challenge and this one got me. My vertigo set in. The area was wet and slippy with rainfall the previous day. I do plan on reaching the top if I go again in the future when it's not as wet.

Walked from Flam. Gets more difficult as you get closer. Good area at the top to view waterfall and valley below.

We had some time before dinner so did this little hike up hill. It only take an hour and a half round trip if you are in shape (prob 2 hours if slower or want to spend more time at falls). Consult map before you go, as not many signs until turn off which is probably 20-25 mins out of... More
