They say Flåm area is a paradise for those who seek unique and spectacular experiences in nature. It is surrounded by steep mountains, thundering waterfalls and narrow valleys. We entered Flåm area through Gudvangen. We liked Gudvangen more, since it wasn’t that touristy. They had nice opportunities for kayaking and other sport activities. Moving forward to our destination, we uncovered another hidden gem of Norway – a village called Undredal. Undredal is famous for the brown goat cheese (geitost) that is still produced the traditional way. Prior to 1988, Undredal was only accessible by boat. We made a quick coffee stop and went for a shower in the local guesthouse. What is great about Norway, is that it has many guesthouses where you can take a shower not matter if you stayed there or not.
We reached Flåm by noon. We were hoping to spend here more but it was really crowded and with no proper places to sit and have lunch. We went to see the train museum and stroll a bit round the village, but since the weather was so nice, we didn’t want to spend it inside so we moved forward ( more like upward) to Lærdal. We didn’t take the usual route through the tunnel, but went above it, through the Aurland.
