This is a nice Trail between Flåm and Vatnahalsen. It's part of the norwegian Rallarvegen. The word Rallar is a name that the railway workforce had and the word vegen is the norwegian word for road in its singular form. The road was used to build and maintain the railroad going from Oslo to Bergen. Today it's a recreational area. Its possible to use a bicycle here between July and early October depending on the snow conditions. Some also travel in this areas during the winter (ski or fatbikes).

This part of the road is paved half the way and a gravel road the rest of it. The final part up to Vatnahalsen is extremely steep.

Be aware of the weather conditions before you go for this trip as it can be rough.
