Norway rail trips: The Rauma Line

Rauma Line by Leif Johnny Olestda, NSB-VY

One of the most spectacular rail trips in Norway!

Rauma line passes 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 to the beautifully located fjord village of Andalsnes. The train normally makes photo stops en route.

  • 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!

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.
