Silversea Luxury Cruises To FLAM

FLAM
FLAM

If we haven’t said it already, Norway’s luxury is its sheer natural beauty. And at the very top of the pile is the all-inclusive Flam, a destination that is home to Glacial waterways lined by evergreen forests amidst jagged mountains and sheer cliff walls. Situated inland, on the arm of the 204-kilometre Sognefjord, the village has just 400 inhabitants. Its little size does not belie its gigantic heart, and Flam’s expansive loveliness knows no bounds.

In fact, UNESCO has dedicated the Sognefjord as a World Heritage Site for its exquisite natural beauty. There are many ways to imbibe in the beauty of this destination. Some of the more peaceful among you will enjoy just drinking it all in from the veranda or deck of your ship, while adrenaline bunnies will most probably want to jump in a Zodiac and gain first-hand experience that way. But beware! Travelling the shores of one of the deepest fjords may be exciting but it is also fast, wet and bumpy! Most visitors will not want to miss out on a one-hour train journey that has been describes by more than one source as being “the world’s most beautiful”. The Flam railway is iconic and will have you holding your breath as your travel through steep, winding roads, around massive mountains, and past gushing rivers and waterfalls. Scary? A little. Picturesque? No question. Worth it? Most definitely.

Excursions in FLAM

Fjord Safari by RIB boat

Travel the path of the Norse gods on this fast and exciting ride through the Aurlandsfjord and the Nærøyfjord, two branches of Sognefjord, one of the world's longest and deepest fjords that is filled with the most iconic, majestic scenery imaginable. This trip is for physically fit guests only who are ready to sustain a fast and bumpy boat ride.


Today's short excursion (just 2 hours in total) is a chance to race through the awe-inspiring Aurlandsfjord and the Nærøyfjord at a breathtaking pace for the full 90 action-packed minutes of your ride. Arrive at the landing stage for your Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB Boat) to receive a safety briefing on your boat and be fitted with a life vest and survival suit.


The first arm of the Sognefjord you travel through is the Aurlandsfjord , which stretches 17km, beginning in the village of Flam and ending at Mount Beitelen. This wide branch of the main fjord offers spectacular views of snow-covered peaks, waterfalls and farms that appear the same as they have for centuries or more.


The Aurlandsfjord gives way to the Nærøyfjord, named for the Norse god "Njord," the God of the Seafarer and the sea. UNESCO has dedicated this arm of the Sognefjord as a World Heritage Site for its exquisite natural beauty. Glacial lakes surround evergreen forests amidst jagged mountains and sheer cliff walls. Speed along past waterfalls and free-flowing rivers that cross the fjord, spotting marine mammals along the way.


Your crew plan to make many stops along the way to discover the natural beauty, culture and history of this striking region. At the conclusion of your thrilling ride, make your way back to the pier.
