Get an early start to Oslo Central Station for the start of your scenic journey on the Bergen Railway. This train ride, voted as one of the best in the world, takes you over the “mountainous rooftop” of Norway and through charming villages like Gol and and Geilo on your way towards Bergen.
At Myrdal, switch to the Flåm Railway for an incredible 20 km ride with a 900-metre descent to the beautiful town of Flåm. Here, you have about 45 minutes of free time, which you may wish to use by learning about the history of the world’s steepest train line at the Flåm Railway Documentation Centre. (Free admission is included.)
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.
At Gudvangen, a bus takes you through the magnificent Nærøy Valley to Voss, the connection point for the final train ride to Bergen.
Spend the night at a hotel in Bergen.
