Train from Oslo Airport to City then on to Bergen

I am flying into Oslo on 14 December from London with my flight arriving at 10.40am. I am then need to get to Bergen. Will I have enough time to clear Immigration etc and get to Oslo Central to catch the 12.03pm train to Bergen? I'd like to see at least some of the mountain region rather than just flying to Bergen.

Maybe if the flight were on time, you were one of the first off the plane and travelling with hand luggage only. And have max luck with the train depature off the airport thereafter.

Probably not. It's theoretically possible, but "max luck" is right.

Also, even with the 12:03 train, you will reach Geilo (the first station above 500m) at 15:38, which is after sunset at that time of year. So you're probably not going to get a great view of much of the mountain scenery even if you manage to make the train.

Will you have a return trip that could include the rail journey?

Unfortunately not, I'm flying back from Bergen on 26 December. I'm doing a Hurtigruten voyage which doesn't dock until 14.30 so will again be dark and I'm flying back to Australia from Oslo on 28 Dec.

Why aren't you flying to Bergen in the first place?

I'm not doing that flight as my main ticket is from BNE to OSL return on Qantas/BA with a stopover in London on the way over. Have decided to not take the risk with trying to get the 12.03 train and the next one would be all in darkness anyway, so am flying to Bergen with SAS. Thanks everyone for your help
