I did this trip from Bergen to Oslo. Although quite a long journey, if you catch the early morning train you can look out of the windows and admire the mountains, fjords, waterfalls and rivers as you travel to Oslo. Alternatively you can chat to...More

A fabulous 7 hour journey over the mountains, with breathtaking views. Book in advance and a single journey is approx £23. Reserved seating and very comfortable modern carriages. THE best way to travel between Bergen and Oslo.

If you do not stop and experince Finse and Myrdal, you should have a very good excuse :-) Finse has a special hotel, that feels like you are in the wildernes of antaktis. Myrdal has an even more fantastic railway than Bergens banen.

We have booked the daytrip norway in a nutshell and enjoyed it at all!!! You travel via train and fjord ships. It is very comfortable and you can explore a lot in a short time. Would do it again!!

We travelled this trip in 2016 and again this year. On both occasions we were blown away by the scenery and changes in the landscape as we progress to the highest point. On the last occasion the snow was spectacular. The train itself was very...More

We purchased our tickets for the Hardangerfjord cruise directly from NORLED. We did not buy from NIN.
