Norway in a Nutshell highlights:
The Bergen line
The Bergen Railway is a unique experience on Northern Europe's highest-altitude
railway line. The highest point is the Finse station, 1222 ms above sea level.
One of the greatest challenges is the harsh and changeable weather. Keeping the
railway open demands great effort and technical expertise. Today, skilled
workers, effective equipment, tunnels and snow tunnels make the Bergen Railway
one of the safest and most comfortable ways of travelling between Oslo and
Bergen. The line was voted one of the 20 best railway experiences in the world
The Flam Railway
The journey on the Flam Railway is regarded as one of the highlights of the
Norway in a Nutshell® tour. The 20-km-long train journey from the mountain
station of Myrdal down to the fjord village of Flam, takes around 55 minutes. On
the journey, you have views of some of the most magnificent mountain scenery in
Norway with an ever-changing panorama of mountain peaks and cascading
waterfalls. The train moves slowly or stops at the best views.
Amazing Norwegian fjords - on UNESCO's World Heritage List
The boat sails out the Aurlandsfjord and into the Naeroyfjord, one of the
narrowest fjords in Europe, included on UNESCO's famous World Heritage List.
Surrounded by towering mountains up to 1,800 ms high, this branch of the
Sognefjord is amazingly beautiful. On the journey, you have excellent views of
small traditional farms. If you are lucky, you will see goats grazing right
beside the fjord and seals basking on rocks before the boat moors at Gudvangen.
Stalheimskleiva hairpin road*
The journey continues by coach up the steep and spectacular hairpin bends of
Stalheimskleiva*. The road up to Stalheim Hotel has 13 steep bends. After
enjoying the wonderful views of the Stalheimsfossen and Sivlefossen waterfalls,
the journey continues on to Voss and further by train to Bergen.
