Norway in a Nutshell
Norway's fjords. You can experience the breath-taking railway line Flåmsbana, the Aurlandsfjord, the narrow Nærøyfjord and the steep Stalheimskleiva.
On the journey you have views of the small traditional farms. If you are lucky you will catch sight of the goats which graze along the edge of the fjord or of the seals lying on rocks before the boat moors at Gudvangen.
The Flåm Railway
The journey on the Flåmsbana railway is one of the high points on the journey. The 20km-long train journey from the mountain station of Myrdal and down to Flåm deep in the fjord takes around 55 minutes. Experience views of the most magnificent mountain scenery in Norway with an ever-changing panorama of tall mountains and thundering waterfalls. The train moves slowly or stops at the best views.
The Bergen Railway
The Bergen Railway is a unique experience on Northern Europe´s highest railway. One of the greatest challenges is the harsh and changeable weather. Skilled workers, effective equipment, tunnels and snowtunnels make the Bergen Railway one of the safest and most comfortable way of travelling between Oslo and Bergen. This line was recognized to be one of the best railway experiences in the world.
