Full Itinerary

Day 1: OSLO – MYRDAL – FLÅM
Depart Oslo by train and cross the rugged Hardangervidda Mountain Plateau. Change train at Myrdal and enter the famous Flåm Railway. This railway has been ranked as one of the top 20 train rides in the world and is one of the world’s steepest railway lines on normal gauge. The twisting tunnels that spiral in and out of the mountain are manifestations of the most daring and skillful engineering in Norwegian railway history. On the 20km train ride, see rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascade down the side of steep, snow-capped mountains and mountain farms that cling to sheer slopes. Arrive Flåm, beautifully situated at the end of the Aurlandsfjord. The Norwegian fjord landscape is considered to be one of the most spectacular sceneries in the world.
