Bergen - Norway in a Nutshell

Medium

Experience some of Norway’s most beautiful fjord scenery, in just one day. Included are the scenic Bergen Railway, the breathtaking Flåm Railway, the Aurlandsfjord, the narrow Nærøyfjord (now included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List) and the steep hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva.

Itinerary: Travel by train from Bergen to Voss, before continuing by bus to Gudvangen. On the way you will ascend the Stalheimskleiva road, with its 13 steep hairpin bends (Stalheimskleiva is only open during the summer). A 2-hour fjord cruise will bring you along the Nærøyfjord, Europe’s narrowest fjord channel, to Flåm. In Flåm you will board the Flåm Railway, which passes through wild and beautiful mountain scenery with waterfalls and steep mountain sides from the Sognefjord and up to a height of 900 metres. There is no other adhesion railway in the world running on normal tracks that is so steep over a long distance. Return to Bergen by train from Myrdal.
