I read so much about it and unfortunately a previous trip to Oslo didn’t give me the chance to experience this epic train journey on the Bergen Line (Bergensbanen).
Known for its wet weather, Bergen offered a stunning sunny and crisp weather for my stay there and (apart for some morning mist), I enjoy the same sunny weather during my journey to Oslo.
The views were spectacular and the autumn colours added a special dimension to the landscape offered. The time flew past and the changing landscape from fjords, barren high altitude plateau, snow capped mountains and pine forests and lakes kept my attention high throughout the journey. I can’t recommend enough this experience. Is it one of Europe’s or the World’s best train journey? You decide – maybe from this video or experiencing for yourself.
I bought the tickets online directly from NSB:
My train journey was to take more than the 6hr 45 min scheduled. The train was delayed by more than an hour – a quick search online confirmed that I was entitled to a refund for such a delay:
The train also stops at Myrdal station where you can take the branch line to Flåm. This service is privately run and tickets can be bought on the link below:
