Enjoy this short walk to a waterfall in the Flam Valley. First pass through farmland, which has, at certain times, some Highland Cattle grazing. Continue onto a woodland trail up to the Brekkefossen waterfall. A lovely, short but steep walk.

Author’s recommendation

There is a Coop supermarket in Flam to pick up a packed lunch, as well as a few restaurants and food vans.
