Create an itinerary including The Bergen Railway
Passing through the heart of Norway's mountainous interior, The Bergen Railway links two of the country's primary cities and serves as one of Europe's most popular train journeys. Hop aboard this scenic rail line, which stretches 496 km (308 mi) between Oslo and Bergen, to get a glimpse of nature outside of Norway's urban areas. You'll travel on one of Europe's highest railways, passing at a height of 1,237 m (4,058 ft) over the Hardangervidda plateau. You can make the entire journey in about seven hours (depending on the weather). Along the way, you'll be treated to sweeping alpine views of lakes, streams, rugged hills, and possibly the area's reindeer herds. Get your tickets early, as spaces can fill up quickly. Make The Bergen Railway a centerpiece of your Oslo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Oslo holiday maker.
