Getting There

By car from Balestrand, take Rte. 55 east along the Sognefjord, crossing the fjord by ferry at Dragsvik and by bridge at Sogndal. At Sogndal, drive east to Kaupanger, where you'll cross the Ardalsfjord by ferry, and head south to Revsnes. In Revsnes, pick up Rte. 11 heading southeast. Drive east until you connect with a secondary road heading southwest through Kvigno and Aurland. From Aurland, take Rte. 601 southwest to Flåm. The whole trip takes 2 to 3 hours, depending on weather and road conditions.

Bus travel is less convenient. One bus a day Monday to Saturday runs between Aurland and Flåm. The trip takes 30 minutes.

From May to September, two ferries per day cross the fjord between Aurland and Flåm. The trip takes 30 minutes.

Flåm can also be reached by high-speed express boats from Bergen, Balestrand, and Leikanger. The boats carry passengers only. In Bergen, call Fylkesbaatane (tel. 55-90-70-70; www.fjord1.no/fylkesbaatane); the one-way trip costs NOK625 ($125/£63).
