Stay in this cute, haunted hotel for the history. Comfortable rooms. Great service. Food is expensive but there are other food options very close by, including a grocery.

The Port Phillip Bay is 30 m deep. The fjord we are in is 1300m deep. I just cannot fathom the depth that is underneath us. We have towering mountains on either side of the boat and it's almost like you can reach out and touch the sides. Flam is a small village, only 2 meters in altitude. It is found an a side arm of Norways longest fjord which is 200km long. That's like driving a big boat from Melbourne City up the Calder to Bendigo, then plus some. This ...

The vast majority of people just pass right through Flam because it's tiny and not particularly interesting, but we had the time so I booked us a night in the countryside in a private cottage.

... waterfall. There was a bit of a language barrier there, but they told us it was about a 1 1/2 to 2 hour walk one way! We didn't have time for that until the last bus would leave, so we had to reassess our plans. We decided to go down the path a little bit anyway to find somewhere to sit down and have our lunch. We walked about 10 minutes down and came across a rockslide section that you had to climb across to get back on the path. It had a nice view of the river and ...
... arrived at the top of the waterfall. The snow had just finished melting from the area as our guide indicated that last week there was still a fair amount up on the plateau. The hike took us high up on the mountain, walking on moss, marsh type soil and "bouncing up and down" as the soil was filled with water from the recent snow melt. We saw many Reindeer tracks but alas none in sight! We spent a few hours hiking around ...
