Highlights of the train ride from Oslo to Trondheim

As Norway’s second highest rail line after the Bergen Railway, the Dovre Railway includes great variations in elevation and terrain. The journey takes you over the over the rugged Dovrefjell mountain plateau and along the beautiful Gudbrandsdalen valley, passing through 8 kilometres of mountain tunnels and making a steep, winding descent down to the Trondheim lowlands.

On the way you’ll enjoy scenery of pristine nature reserves and small towns with traditional log houses. Overall, the train ride from Oslo to Trondheim is approximately 7 hours.

The ultimate highlight of the Dovre Railway journey is of course the city at the end of the line, Trondheim. After your relaxing train ride, stretch your legs with a stroll to the historic Nidaros Cathedral and a walk to the city’s historic Bakklandet neighbourhood to admire the rows of colourful, old wooden houses. Or for a more vigorous walk, head up to Kristiansten Fortress for a panoramic view over the city, surrounding hills and coastline.



Customisations for your holiday on the Dovre Railway in Norway

As Nordic Visitor specialises in creating bespoke itineraries in Norway, you can easily combine a trip on the Dovrebanen train trip from Oslo to Trondheim with other scenic journeys by land and sea.

The most popular option is to add an overnight Hurtigruten cruise from Trondheim to the city of Bergen, “The Gateway to the Fjords”. Sailing to Bergen, you would have the option to join a guided shore excursion to the picture-perfect Atlantic Ocean Road. After a day or two in Bergen, we recommend taking the Norway in a Nutshell® railway journey back to Oslo, a route that includes a trip on the famous Flåm Railway, a short fjord cruise and a thrilling ride on a steep, twisting mountain road.

Excellent service

Second time we've used Nordic Visitor and they will continue to be my first choice for booking tours. Excellent service from travel consultants, value for money and the information provided make it an excellent company.

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

I did not realize how easy the travel would be

I did not realize how easy the travel would be, it was a great blend of being on your own and the privacy, but having a back up and someone to organize the transportation was great. I felt like I saw the most I could in 5 days.

Impressed with how well everything was handled

I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.  I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem.

Norway in a Nutshell® and the Pulpit Rock, July 2017

Truly was a trip of a lifetime!

All accomodations were perfect. All hotels were close to all the local attractions, easy to get to from the airport, train station, ferry station. All the rooms were ready when I got there, they were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast were really delicious. I am a vegetarian, and had plenty of options. My whole experience with Nordic Visitor has been exceptional, and I have been telling everyone of my friends how easy everything was. Sofia was very patient with me, and worked with me, to tailor the itinerary to my satisfaction, was prompt in answering all my questions. Everything was done over email, which I loved, because I didnt have to rely on my memory. All in all, Nordic Visitor rocks! This was truly a trip of a lifetime!
