Here is the hostel where I stayed, which was quite cute. I didn't book until the last minute, so all of the shared rooms were already booked. So I ended up with a room to myself with a bunk bed and a bathroom. Reservations can be made at http://www.hihostels.com/dba/hostels-Fl%C3%A5m-042071.en.htm
It was quite chilly even during the day (in the 30's F), but I was so happy that it wasn't raining that I was happy to wear two layers of pants & my gloves.
One of the first things I did after my arrival was to locate the local brewery, Aegir, named after the brother of Logi in Norse mythology. Read all about it here: http://www.flamsbrygga.no/en/brewery/our-story/ Of course it turns out that the brewery was started in 1989 by an American, but it looks cool inside.

I also did a fair amount of hiking and exploring around the area, where I ran across some interesting and beautiful sights.
|The wooly madrigal: a cross between a llama and an albino pig|
|The home of the wooly madrigals|
|Some land hippos, or maybe they're rhinos|
|A troll's home|
|Is it a train car or a cafe? Or a train car disguised as a cafe?|
|An awake boat|
Some simple food tips:
|Don't eat the poisonous pink honeysuckle!|
|This mushroom is ok though|
