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

We started at Dombas having come on the main line from Trondheim (also scenic but not so dramatic.) Walked the few hundred yards into the town where there was a bakery, supermarket and cafes to stock up (no food on the train) The train was specially built with large windows to make the most of the views as the line...

Went By Coach from Andalsnes to Bjorli stopping at the Troll wall visitors centre, Slettafossen and then following the Rauma river. We then boarded the train which follows the river down into the valley and at its wildest point near the Kylling Bridge Waterfall back through the mountains seeing the breathtaking Vermafossen falls 381 Metres high breath taking scenery. The... More

We cruised for 2 weeks to the Northern Cape and one of our best excursions was to the Rauma Railway. This is viewed by many as being better than the famous Flam Railway and I would agree. We booked directly at the rail booking office which mean not only was it cheaper than the cruise excursion but we were able... More

We visited in May. We had a combined coach and train trip from Andalsnes to Bjorli. Sitting on the right hand side of the coach travelling up the valley we had brilliant views of the Troll wall and Rauma river. Two stops (one at the Troll wall visitor centre and one at the Slettafossen) gave us chance to take photos.... More

This little train's voyage from Andalsnes takes it through some of the most breathtaking scenery I've ever admired. It goes from the depth of the fjord valley, to great heights, over rivers, bridges, and awesome views of mountains, rocks, and lively cascades. Pure joy.
