Flamsbana Railway, Norway

The Flamsbana Railway is regarded as a masterpiece of Norwegian engineering as is one of the world's steepest railway lines on normal gauge. The twisting tunnels that spiral in and out of the mountain are the result of the most daring and skilful engineering in Norwegian railway history.

The Oslo Flam train started carrying passengers in 1941. As of now it has been operating more than seventy years and is one of the main tourist attractions in Norway. The Flamsbana line stretches for 20 km, has ten stations, twenty tunnels and one bridge.

The train route starts in the highest located Myrdal station (866m above sea level) and ends in a very small Flam town, nestled in the innermost corner of the stunningly picturesque Aurlandsfjord. During one hour long route Flamsbana train crosses the Flam valley and river three times, simultaneously reveals waterfall cascades, steep mountains and breathtaking Norway's longest fjord.

Don’t miss out on this thrilling most beautiful train journey in the world that offers wild and magnificent nature scenery throughout all seasons.
