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, a thrilling ride around the 13 hairpin bends of the Stalheimskleiva mountain road. 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.

Complete Norway, February 2020

We had a great experience

Everything was fine, accomodations were perfect, comfortable and very good breakfast. Our experience with Nordic Visitor was very helpful and the followups were very efficient.

Tracy, United States

Highlights of Norway, May 2019

Fantastic tour! My second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours

I enjoyed the small group size and getting to know my tour mates. I most enjoyed the Fjord part of the tour.  Flam was amazing and the accomodations were fantastic! This was my second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours with Nordic Visitor. I have recommended to friends and 2 have used for self-drive tours in Iceland. I also wrote a positive trip advisor review on my Iceland tour and it was read by 1,500 people! I will give another positive write-up on this trip. I love to look at your website (which is one of the best travel websites I've seen) and dream about where I may want to go next.

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, January 2020

Wonderful experience!

It's intimidating visiting a foreign country where you don't speak the language. Our fears were put to rest the moment we started our tour, the whole experience was just wonderful. Everything was wonderful, our tour was carefully planned and made the maximum use of our time.
