Flam cruise terminal
Large cruise ships to Flam dock on a wharf in the harbor area. The wharf is located at short walking distance from the port. Before the year 2000 (when the "cruise pier" was inaugurated), cruise vessels used to stay anchored on the fjord without reaching the port.
Occasionally, passengers are transported to the railway station via the ship's tender boats.
