Brekkefossen, Flam

#2 of 8 in Parks in Aurland Municipality
Waterfall · Nature / Park
Marvel at the long drop of Brekkefossen, a waterfall pouring from a hanging valley through a twisting gully. Though it can be viewed in full from the Flam railway, up close you can only take in about 115 m (377 ft) of the gorgeous waterfall's full 545.5 m (1,790 ft)--this perhaps accounts for its being generally overlooked. Wear sturdy shoes on the steep trek to the viewing point at the falls' base, where you will also be rewarded by beautiful sights of Flam, a nearby village. Take a walking stick if you need a little extra help to climb the trail. Before you head to Flam, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Flam road trip planning tool, to make sure you see all that Flam has to offer, including Brekkefossen.

  • Short walk to this picturesque waterfall that can be seen on the hillside above Flåm Fairly steep steps for 1km up to base of the falls. Good views back over Flåm and the fjord.  more »
  • It was quite a steep climb so as we went up we left behind several family members. However, it was worth it for the amazing view of the fjord and the beautiful waterfall. I was impressed by how much.....  more »
  • Amazing place. Beautiful. Short steep hike up but worth being able to have lunch there to enjoy the view.
  • Amazing waterfall that rivals any we saw in Iceland! Worth the short climb but was a very muddy trail as it was raining earlier. Great view of the fjord and Flåm also.
