Departure by train from Oslo to Myrdal.

The 5-hour train journey from Oslo to Myrdal is part of the Bergen Railway, which is classed as one of the finest train journeys in the world. This railway connects Oslo and Bergen, the two largest cities in Norway, and shows the diversity of the Norwegian landscape and scenery.

Arriving at Myrdal you will change to the Flåm Railway, passing through wild and beautiful mountain scenery with waterfalls and steep mountain sides from a height of up to 900 meters and down to the Sognefjord. There is no other adhesion railway in the world running on normal tracks that is so steep over a long distance. Myrdal station only has two platforms; when changing to the Flåm Railway you just have to cross the platform to the Flåm Railway. There are restrooms, waiting area, restaurant and souvenir shop at the station.

Note: It is not possible to reserve specific seats for individual travelers on the Flåm Railway, so we recommend that you queue up as soon as the train approaches Myrdal station. Normally, the first two (sometimes four) carriages are reserved for individual travelers. However, if any of the carriages are reserved for groups, there will be a sign in the window of those carriages.

Arriving in Flåm.

After arriving in Flam, you will need to walk to the express boat.

Departure by express boat from pier 2 (boat to Bergen), located approximately 150 meters from the train station. Walk straight along the harbor from the train platform, with the fjord on your right hand side, the express boat is marked with Norled.

Departure of the boat on the Sognefjord, the world’s longest and deepest fjord, to Balestrand.

From the Wharf it’s a short walk to the Bergenhus Fortress with the royal stone hall, Haakon’s Hall, and the Rosenkrantz tower.

At the end of the tour you’ll walk through narrow alleys where people actually live.
