Flam finds a home on one of the inner arms of the Sognefjord – the longest fjord in Norway. Take a boat trip through the inner part of Aurlandsfjord and continue into the jaw-dropping Næroyfjord – which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005. This gentle boat ride takes you through the 17 kilometre-long fjord, surrounded by steep mountainsides, waterfalls and narrow passages. It brings you to the head of the fjord and the small settlement of Gudvangen where you’ll change from boat to bus. Carry on through the Naeroy Valley, to the Stalheim Hotel. Enjoy a coffee break as you look out on the valley below and drive down the 13 steep curves of Stalheimskleiva road – with waterfalls on two sides. Then it’s time to return to Flam, heading back through the valley and several tunnels along the way.
