Our second port of call was the beautiful Flam. Situated in Aurlandsfjord, a tributary of the Sagnefjord. It has a population of only 350 but has on average 450,000 visitors a year. Most come for the Flam Railway which takes you to the high mountain plateau at Myrdal.
As we had 2 little ones with us we decided just to get off the ship and have a leisurely stroll around. We had spotted a children’s playground from the ship and this was our first stop so Samuels cousin Henry could have a play. I don’t think I have ever been to a playground and been surrounded by such incredible views.
Next we decided to take a walk up the mountain side to make the most of the views. It was a steady walk and not too steep. There were some fantastic vantage points and some interesting pieces of art/sculpture along the route.
We then headed back to the ship to enjoy the views from the sun beds and allow Samuel and Henry to have a swim. It was strange sunbathing and seeing snow on the mountains. Not the weather we were expecting at all!
