The train from Oslo Rygge Air port to Oslo S and Oslo S to Oslo Gardermoen Airport is quite good.
The free buses are linked from airport Rygge to Rly station Rygee. Whereas the Railway station at Oslo Gardermoen Airport is right inside the airport. Quite convenient at Gardermoen airport.

Please go through the site of NSB rail link for further details.

“Bergen Railway to Flam”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This train journey takes you high up into the alpine zone before descending into Flam where the Flam Railway journey commences. Consequently there is quite a bit of alpine scenery and snow, even in June, to enjoy and photograph. Some beautiful lakes and turquoise blue rivers raging along.

“A long trip”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The trip from Bergen to Oslo take over 7 hours, which is a little too for me personally, but you can survive it :)The return trip with night train to Bergen was really good, it was warm, nice service.

“A long trip - with some highlights”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We booked the trip following advertising touting it as the most scenic railway in the world. 7 hours is a long time on a train, the scenic bits lasted maybe 2 hours - but there is a limit to how much you can enjoy the scenery from a train with dirty windows :-(
Weather is an important factor. The early snows would create a more picturesque outlook. If its raining of foggy, save your money.
An alternative if the weather is nice is book a window seat on a flight to Bergen - the views are equally impressive. In 45min you are in Bergen !!
