Oslo Bergen train with the Myrdal Flam train is a must in all journeys through Norway. Beautiful landscapes the year round and a very good service and well coordinate schedule.

Worth every single penny! The landscapes change continuously, the one more impresssive than the other! Her majesty mother nature has a protagonist role in this trip and if you combine the ferry from Flam to Bergen no words can describe the feeling!

We took the Bergen Railway from Bergen to Oslo. The trip was long but the scenery was gorgeous. Norway is a beautiful country with many different landscapes to enjoy as the train moves eastward. It has been called one the most beautiful train rides in the world and after experiencing it, we would agree. It was truly a wonderful and... More

Took this as a connection between Myrdal at the top of the Flam railway and Oslo. Beautiful trip through the Norwegian countryside with many lakes and mountains. Lots of space for luggage and even a dining car

I traveled from flam to oslo - the ride was very enjoyable. Comfy and clean seats. Great view, but not spectacular. Not a must go unless if it fits well in your plan.

The trip takes around 7 hours, and it is an spectacular one. In that time the train will take you through the four sceneries Norway offers in the south of the country: plains, forest, high mountain and fjords. You will be able to experience the transformation of the landscape, a truly amazing experience.

After having been on the Durango Silverton narrow gauge rail trip in Colorado, I expecting something more spectacular from all the reviews I read. The trip was OK and there was some very nice scenery along the way. It was a welcome break from all the walking we did in Oslo. The train was very comfortable and clean.

After starting in Bergen, you go through some beautiful lakes, with mountains towering to the sides, gorgeous rivers and waterfalls. The train climbs through the mountains to above tree line, where the craggy rocks and glacial lakes are dramatic. The summit of the trip is Finse, at an elevation of 4009 ft. This is a very dramatic trip. Make a... More

We took this train from Oslo to Myrdal. There are a lot of variations on how to do this and the Sognefjord, referred to as "Norway In A Nutshell". We loved the train trip - great, comfortable train, and astounding scenery up in the mountains.
