This is one of the best train routes in the world no doubt. Scenery was breathtaking. Train stops 3-4 times for scenic views. Cruise ride was equally amazing. Even bus ride from Voss til Gudvangen was my best bus ride so far.

A great little train ride through some breathtaking scenery. There is a waterfall stop along the way and short video that gives you basic information. Free entry into museum at end so you can see how it was built.

I know this is said to be a "must do" and don't get me wrong, it is cool but a boat ride through the fjords just blows it away. Even a bus ride from Gudvangen to Voss is better. Tips - the train leaves the...More
