Norway rail trips: The Arctic Nordland Line

Experience the Arctic Nordland Line by Tore Bjorback Amblie, NSB

The spectacular Nordland Line 

This Arctic rail line starts in the picturesque, historic town of Trondheim and takes you through amazing scenery to the beautifully located, Arctic coastal town of Bodo. The entire journey takes approx. 10 hours. It is the longest rail line in Norway, with 44 stations, 293 bridges and 154 tunnels. It is the only rail line to cross the Arctic Circle.
The trip is just as beautiful in winter as in summer, and truly a memory for life.

The Nordland Line takes you as far north as you can get by train in Norway.

What our customers say:

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all.
    I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour.
    Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
