Riding the famous train from Oslo to Bergen via Flåm

The Oslo to Bergen by train experience starts with a ride on the Bergensbanen (Bergen Railway), taking you over the rugged Hardangervidda mountain plateau. From the station at Myrdal, situated 866 metres above sea level, your journey continues on the Flåm Railway (Flåmsbana). This popular train ride offers breathtaking scenery as its vintage rail cars weave their way down the mountains on a 20-kilometre journey to the idyllic fjord village of Flåm, with a stop for a photo at the dazzling Kjosfossen waterfall.

Another major highlight of the train ride from Oslo to Bergen via Flåm is the 2-hour cruise on the steep-sided fjords of Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. From Gudvangen, you’ll transfer from boat to coach bus for the next leg of the journey. In Voss, you’ll reconnect to the Bergen Railway for the final part of your picturesque journey to Bergen.



Planning your train journey from Oslo to Bergen

This amazing Oslo to Bergen railway experience can be done in one day, but of course you will want to have extra days in your itinerary to enjoy the variety of attractions in Oslo and the top sights in Bergen. In as little as 4 days you can enjoy an express round-trip from Oslo on the Norway in a Nutshell tour, with an overnight in Bergen, but for a better sightseeing experience we recommend spending 6 days on the classic round-trip, which also includes a night in Flåm.

Want to tailor your trip from Oslo to Bergen via the Flåm Railway? Nordic Visitor specialises in creating flexible tour packages in Norway, so our local travel experts can easily modify an itinerary to your interests.

For example, we can combine a trip to Geirangerfjord and a Norway in a Nutshell tour in one package for you. Another suggested addition is an extended train journey from Bergen to Stavanger, with the possibility of a day trip to the famous Pulpit Rock

Why not add a cruise to your Oslo to Bergen railway itinerary and see even more fjords? A Hurtigruten cruise along the west coast from Bergen is a wonderful extension to any train tour package in Norway.

Michael, Australia

Norway Fjord Route by Car - Classic, July 2023

Fantastic trip

An absolutely fantastic trip to a beautiful country.

Richard, United Kingdom

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, July 2023

Excellent tour

The service and communication before the trip was very good, and the tour itself excellent. Hotels were very well-chosen. They were a good standard and ideally situated.

Gary, United States

Scenic Norway - Express, July 2023

Exceeded expectations

Great choice of accommodation! They exceeded expectations with first-class hotels and more.

Dana, United States

Express Norway, July 2023

Great way to plan a vacation

Nordic Visitor is a great way to plan a vacation to Scandinavia. They offer multiple options in each country, then you can customise as you want by adding a day in a city, or adding excursions. They know all the best options to make available and do a thorough job of preparing every leg of your journey. It was great to have a personal driver meet us at the airport to take us to our hotel in Oslo. Saved lots of concern about navigating public transportation in another country.

Mary, United States

Norway Road Trip - Classic, July 2023

Amazing

This was the most amazing opportunity to experience different parts of the country. We experienced "different seasons" with the changing climate throughout the locations travelled. We experienced the different cultures of city vs. country living. We were able to talk with locals and learn about the history of Norway. It was a packed holiday between the driving, tours and exploring, but we felt we got a full immersive opportunity by choosing this package.

Aaron, United States

Best of the Norwegian Fjords – Express, July 2023

The itinerary was perfect

We booked the Best of Norway Fjords Express Tour. The itinerary was perfect and well-organised. All accommodations were very close to train stations or cruise ports. The transfers involved minimal wait time between bus and train on the same day. The accommodation, transportation and tours would have been very difficult to book on our own. Nordic Visitor did a great job putting everything together.

Diane, United States

Wonders of the Norwegian Fjords, July 2023

The trip of a lifetime!

This was the trip of a lifetime. Norway is unbelievably beautiful and this trip with Nordic Visitor was amazing! The fjords were spectacular and the Norwegian towns and landscapes were charming. Our small group of 14 (plus the driver and tour guide) was perfect. Our group included people from the USA, Hong Kong and Australia, and all were very friendly and interesting. A perfect tour!

Barry, United States

Best of the Norwegian Fjords – Express, July 2023

Well-organised

From start to finish, well organised. Good communication pre-travel and all reservations on the trip went smoothly.
