If you are coming to Norway and wanting to experience some exceptional scenery on a train, this is the one to do! We did this and the Flåmsbana (Flåm Railway) during our EU Rail Pass travels through Europe and can definitely say the scenery and views on here far surpass that of the better-known southerner. Best of all, it's free... More

About 1h journey by train, the first part was absolutely amazing! Maybe better than the railway from Oslo to Bergen and Myrdal-flam too . The final part in the dombas area maybe is not so wonderful. By the way a fantastic journey! I really appreciate the laptop free to use in Andalsnes station !!! The train chapel is nice too

A great way to see the scenic fjords and valleys around this very pretty area. We had a coach ride up the mountain to Rauma then caught the train back to Andalesnes a very pleasant way to spend the morning and we were very lucky it was not raining according to our guide as it rains 265 days a year...

I have taken this journey several times, during my guiding for the Cruise Ships. Great views espically of Trollvegen / Troll Wall. But, during the winter season the train does not stop/slow down at the wall & bridge. This is an extra 5 minutes, which the NSB cuts out during the winter season. Otherwise great service from the NSB staff... More

The Rauma Rail runs between Andalsness and Dombas. You can have a connecting train to Oslo from here. Scenic ride as a mode of transports gives a superb combination. This gives an opportunity to experience the stunning beauty of nature deep down the interiors which thru roadways would be difficult. Norway is truly incredible need to have money and time... More

On my way to Oslo I was lucky and got a seat on one of the trips the train does with large tour-groups. We stopped for photo-sessions on the way and got some great views. I have also taken this train in the winter and it´s then nothing special bout it. The mountains in Åndalsnes is massive and there is... More

We used our Euro train pass to ride the Rauma Railway otherwise we would have been a little disappointed with the cost of the trip. We boarded the train at Åndalsnes, best side to sit would be the right side and alighted at Dombas. During the first half of the trip (3/4 hour) the scenery was spectacular the rest of... More

Perhaps I was expecting too much, but my journey from Andalsnes to Bjorli and back on the Rauma railway in early June left me totally unimpressed. Yes there are some nice views over the valley, and you get to see a small waterfall from real close and a few other waterfalls in the distance, but it's nothing you couldn't see... More
