The stunning sights offered by the Stegastein and Fjaeland viewpoints will leave you with enough appreciation for the natural beauty of Flam. Yet, the UNESCO World Heritage list entrant is the Naeroyfjord, an arm of the Sognefjord. It is rimmed with tall mountains, waterfalls and locales right out of a Scandinavian legend. It found its place in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2005. A boat-ride across the 17 kilometer long fjord is likely on the cards, for nature lovers. In times gone by the fjord was the main mode of transportation for the inhabitants of the area. The presence of old farms along the banks of the fjord is testimony to the fact that the inhabitants of Flam did use the waterways predominantly. A number of boat cruises are offered to tourists willing to take the ancient waterway.
Nature lovers would love to discover the Kjossfossen Waterfall, which is 225 meters tall. It offers a picturesque view from the train service between Flam and Myrdal Station that makes a special stop for visitors to catch a glimpse of the spectacle. It is among the most visited tourist attractions in Norway.
