is a waterfall located in Aurland Municipality in Vestland county, Norway. The waterfall is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Norway. Its total fall is around 225 metres (738 ft). There is a small power station on the waterfall which is used to power the Flåm Line railway.
The Flåm Line passes directly in front of and over the upper part of the waterfall (the falls continue much longer down to the right (east) of the Flåm Line as you head down into the gorge), which is one of the main attractions for tourists who take the Flåm Line. (Some of the Flam tourist maps are orientated with South at the top.)
