Awesome train ride. Must-do segment in the Norway in a Nutshell itinerary. Pick a seat by a window that can be opened and take lots of photos along the way. We did it from Flam to Myrdal and had to wait in Myrdal for almost 2 hours for our connecting train to Oslo. But the train schedule actually fits better... More

Our Oslo to Myrdal train broke down half way and we couldn't reach Myrdal on time to catch our Myrdal to Flam train as per schedule. They took us by bus to Flam as all the Myrdal to Flam trains were fully booked that evening and they did not want us to get stranded. This was really heroic given the... More

We took this as part of the Norway in a Nutshell ride from Bergen back in August. The view was truly amazing. We arrived at Myrdal around 9:30, and there were tons of tourists (mostly attached to large tour groups, it seemed) waiting. I was a little concerned about getting a seat, but it all worked out quickly and everybody... More

The Flam railway trip is awesome. You just have to cross the platform to change to the Flam train but be carefull in winter, my friend slipped on the ice.The carriages are old and comfortable and there is a video showing the history of construction of the rail line. There are big windows so views are good on both sides.... More

We took the Norway in a nutshell in which the flam railway part was my biggest highlight. The route is very scenic and you get some nice stops to take pictures. We took the train from Myrdal and reached a very picturesque town of Flam

As part of Norway in a Nutshell I took the Flamsbana train from Flam to Myrdal. Brilliant piece of engineering to create this extraordinary railway.Roomy carriages with history and sights explained on a screen, if you can take your eyes off the views! Loved it when the train stopped so I could take a photo and see my first frozen... More

We took the Flåmsbana train and its fantastic, the views are breathtaking, they made a little stopover to enjoy the view of a rainfall, the road is awesome, the train is a classic and one of the best I've ever ride. We booked directly with the NSB website.
