the Flåm Railway
Experince the world’s most spectacular railway journey, and one of the leading tourist attractions in Norway.
The Flåm Railway runs between the mountain station Myrdal by the Bergen Railway, down to Flåm station nestled in the innermost corner of the Aurlandfjord. On the 20 kilometers long train trip, with a height difference of 865 meter, you experience some of the wildest and most magnificent Norwegian fjord and mountain landscape. Discover rivers cutting through deep ravines, waterfalls cascading down steep mountainsides, snow-capped mountain tops and mountain farms clinging to the steep sides.
The Flåm Railway is one of the steepest railway lines in the world on normal tracks, where almost 80% of the journey has a gradient of 5.5%, the equivalent of 1:18. A twisting tunnel, which winds its way throught the mountain at several levels, is proof of the most audacious and skilled engineering exploits in Norwegian railroad history.
You can combine a trip on the Flåm Railway with hiking or cycling down from Myrdal to Flåm.
