A good way to travel from Oslo to Bergen

We took the One-way trip from Oslo to Bergen, which included train from Oslo to Myrdal, then the famous Flam railway from Myrdal to Flam, then a ferry from Flam to Gudvangen, then... read more

We took the One-way trip from Oslo to Bergen, which included train from Oslo to Myrdal, then the famous Flam railway from Myrdal to Flam, then a ferry from Flam to Gudvangen, then a bus from Gudvangen to Voss and, finally, a train from Voss to Bergen. Our trip started at 08.25 and ended at 20.00. We found it a... More

We did the one day tour from Bergen to the Sognefjord ...the sights were great but there was poor information from the tour company to get from one mode of transport to the next. We arrived early at the trsin station but got on the wrong car at first as there was no guidance. We had to ask where to... More

We took the train to the stop (begins with an "M"), where one can then take the steepest train in the world down to Flåm and the fjord. Then took the express boat to Bergen, with also fantastic views. On the train ride, we were surprised to see so much snow-it has been a cool summer.

So I called the hotline to get it rescheduled, since there were some difficulties meeting the predetermined date. Not only did they send me the wrong times from the make up ticket, which I had to repurchase, thus leaving me stranded in Oslo.... Their customer service hotline isn't in the office 10 minutes after the recording says they will be... More

The train up from Flam stops here briefly for the passengers to get off and photograph the waterfall. Its a lovely sight in full flow and signals the steep part of the ascent into the wilder part of the journey

I attended a daily Sognefjorden in a Nutshell tour which was really good. You should definitely take this tour in order to have all at one day, Sognefjorden,Flamsbanan and the 2 hours of Oslo-Bergen railway. It is really worthy...

It is very touristy but beautiful views of the fjords. We took the NiN Naeryfjord via Bergen-Voss-Gundaven-Flam-Myrdal-Bergen route. As this is the summer season, the train from Bergen-Voss and buses to Flam were full of tourists. But the views of the fjords were the highlights of our tour especially with picturesque villages and snowcapped mountains along the way. Highly recommended.

We traveled from Oslo to Bergen by train (beautiful scenery!) then spent a day exploring Bergen and did NIN 2 days after arriving in Bergen and were glad we did it this way. It's a very long day but so worth it! It is very easy to figure out how to get from one mode of transportation to another. We... More

Yes, it is transportation, train to the train to the boat to the bus to the train. We were traveling to Bergen and this gave us the opportunity to see more of the countryside and it did! Personally, one day of waterfalls, mountains and a boat ride was enough of the "Fjord experience for me".....you are given the tickets at... More

Excellent trip. Takes an entire day but totally worth it. A mix of train, bus and boat rides. We did it from Bergen so left at 8 am and back by 6. Don't know how one does it from Oslo
