Flåm

Leaving Leirvik

Nothing much to see in Leirvik so we left early to continue into Sogne fjord.

Motoring at first but after a few hours we could sail. Dead running in very gusty conditions.

Arriving at Flåm

We motored the last hours before we arrived at Flåm. Touristy place. Most expensive harbour fee so far in Norway, 350 NOK, water and electricity included.

The next morning we took the train “Flåmsbanen” up the mountain to Myrdal where we unfolded our bicycles and started the steep downhill trip back to Flåm.
