Norway Vacation- Truely memorable experience was in Flam and the kayaking. The 3 hours we were on the water was spectacular. The hotel that we changed to was perfect since we did not have to look out to the cruise ships that docked on a daily basis.

The instructions provided were excellent and the vacation went smoothly with no incident. Weather did not cooperate on some days, rain showers for a good portion of the afternoon but we were prepared with rain jackets and umbrellas.

Having an emergency contact was a great comfort. We did not need to utilize

Hotel Reviews
Heimly Pensjonat

While Flam does not offer many options for accommodations, I am happy that we changed to this after researching. This hotel was situated away from the large cruise ships that dock. While you could still see the cruise ship, you were able to see the beautiful landscape. Breakfast and dinner were perfect, and the staff even went out of their way to prepare a vegetarian dinner for my daughter. Rooms were nothing spectacular, but we were outside more than inside.

Hotel Christiania Teater

Near the train station which is great for an early morning flight connection. Very large room and staff accommodated us with a carry-on breakfast since we had to leave the following day at 530am for our flight. Location was great to walk around the city and explore.

Could not rent bikes that afternoon due to heavy rains that came through Flam. This was a disappointment since we were looking forward to biking. Can not control the weather. I should have inquired about cancelation fee due to weather prior to leaving yet never crossed my mind.
