First you need to go onto www.whatsinport.com, select Norway and then Flam, there you can see how many ships are in port that day. The more ships the less chance you have of buying tickets as the cruise lines buy up their tickets in advance. If you decide you want to risk getting your own tickets then the booking office is only about 5 minutes walk from the ship, check on the web site for their opening times (just Google Flam Railway) and get off the ship to queue before they open. We skipped breakfast on the ship, purchased our tickets 280 Nk (around £31) each for a return ticket, then got back on the ship and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast. The train is very comfortable and the views are fantastic, you can depart the train at stopping points and walk back down following the train track if you wish. Happy cruising.

You can....but not advisable...try and book before hand through their website ...It is a very scenic trip well worth going on....Try looking on cruise critic website to see if anyone has booked a carraige...you may be able to help fill it....ENJOY.

You can buy tickets at the station,and go so far then come back to the ship. Flam is lovely and plenty to see and the scenery great. You can even dip your feet in the FFordd and the museum is good. It is well worth just stating round Flam we have been about 4 times and still love it. Have a lovely time and enjoy your cruise.

Having been raised in an Irish catholic household we have had no reason to visit the north, in f...

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...
