Train Oslo - Bergen, incl. Flåm Railway & fjord cruise (new vessel)

Medium

As an alternative to direct train from Oslo to Bergen, we can offer a beautiful detour via the Sognefjord and the Flåm Railway:

Departure from Oslo by train. The 5-hour train journey from Oslo to Myrdal is part of the Bergen Railway, classed as one of the finest train journeys in the world. The train journey will bring you across Hardangervidda Mountain Plateau, with Finse as the highest train station at 1222 metres above sea level. In Myrdal you will change to the Flåm Railway, connecting the Bergen Line to the Sognefjord. You will pass through wild and beautiful mountain scenery with waterfalls and steep mountain sides before reaching the fjord village of Flåm. Flåm is Norway’s only fjord village with train connection. Since 2016 a new, eco-friendly vessel operates on the Nærøyfjord. The Nærøyfjord is the narrowest fjord channel in Europe, and has recently been added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The new boat cruises between Flåm and Gudvangen in 1,5 hours. Parts of the journey will be at high speed, before it switches to battery power when you reach the most scenic parts of the fjord and allows you to enjoy the scenery to the fullest. The ferry design is inspired by a trail finding its way up a steep mountainside. It measures 40 meters in length and 15 meters in width. Outside the ferry, passengers will be able to climb all over the boat while the inside will feature panoramic views. From Gudvangen the journey continues by bus through Nærøyfjord Valley. The last part of the excursion will be by train from Voss to Bergen, Norway’s second largest city and the world’s only city surrounded by 7 mountains and 7 fjords
