By train: The scenic Dovre line from Oslo S (Oslo central station) with a couple of daily departures. The entire journey takes approximately 7 1/2 hours. There are no rail lines between Bergen and Trondheim, so you would have to take the Bergen line from Bergen to Oslo and then continue on the Dovre line.
By road: A scenic drive through the Gudbrandsdal valley and across the Dovrefjell mountain plateau (road #E6). Takes approximately 7 to 8 hours
