Get an early start at Oslo Central Station, where the Bergensbanen train departs for a scenic journey over the mountainous rooftop of Norway on your way to Bergen. This railway, voted as one of the best in the world, takes you through the charming villages of Gol and Geilo on your way to the Myrdal Station.
At Myrdal, switch to the Flåm Railway for an incredible 20 km ride with 900 meter descent down to the beautiful town of Flåm. Here, you’ll have free admission to the Flåm Railway Documentation Centre beside Flåm Station, where you can learn more about the engineering of the world’s steepest railway line.
From Flåm, continue by boat through the Aurlandsfjord and into the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Nærøyfjord, the narrowest fjord in Europe. This is perhaps the most beautiful part of the Sognefjord with its mighty waterfalls and small farms clinging to the steep mountainsides, bound to leave you breathless.
At Gudvangen, a bus takes you through the magnificent Nærøy Valley to Voss, where you will board the train for the last stretch to Bergen.
Spend the night at a hotel in Bergen.
We recommend that you book luggage transfer for the Norway in a Nutshell part of your travel. Your luggage will be picked up in Oslo and will be waiting for you upon arrival in Bergen. Pack an overnigh bag if you spend the night in Flåm. Price per item is €40.
