Norway rail trips: The Rauma Line

Rauma Line by Leif Johnny Olestda, NSB-VY

The Rauma Line – a spectacular rail trip

passing along the scenic Rauma River, across amazing bridges, through a horseshoe tunnel and along the Troll Wall; a part of the mountain massif “Troll Peaks” in the Romsdal valley.

The Troll Wall is the tallest vertical rock face in Europe, about 1100 m from its base to the summit of its highest point. At its steepest, the summit ridge overhangs the base of the wall by nearly 50 m.

The Rauma Line is a side line off the main Dovre Line, taking you from the Dombas mountain station in the Gudbrandsdal valley to the beautifully located fjord village of Andalsnes. The train normally makes photo stops en route.

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.
