flam ship in October


I am planing a trip from Oslo to Bergen in October and will stay one night at flam.

I want to buy the tickets by myself.

but one thing is that I don't quite understand the timetable of the ferry between flam and gudvangen. is there only one ferry everyday after September, departing at 1510?

If that's the case , that mean we can only take the train from gudvangen after 1820? that will be late at night and can't see the view .....

may any one give me some advice? thank you very much

You are correct, there is only one boat connection between Flåm and Gudvangen out of season. It is meant to correspond with the Oslo trains. Unfortunately, the days are not long enough for the NiN from Oslo at this time of year.

oh.... is the view from voss to Bergen nice? will it be a pity if I take a night train?

What if I stay at voss for one night? Does it worth it?

but then I will have one day less in Bergen.

thanks for your advice.

The bus journey from Gudvangen to Voss is scenic but the train from Voss to Bergen is mostly in tunnels.

If you stayed a night in Voss you could use the Hardangerlinja bus the next day to travel along the north side of the Hardangerfjord via Norheimsund which is a beautiful trip. Timetable is here:


The early bus will get you to Bergen 1100hrs.
