A steep railway taking you by spectacular waterfalls, in and out of snow-capped mountains and ending up by the Sognefjord.
It loops its way from Myrdal on the Oslo-Bergen railway to Flå?m 865 meters below, nestled in the innermost corner of the Aurlandfjord.
Each year, this exciting stretch of railway attracts people from all corners of the world, making the Flå?m Railway one of Norway's major and most spectacular tourist attractions.
The train journey provides some of Norway's wildest and most magnificent scenery. On the 20 km-long train ride you can see rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascade down the side of steep, snow-capped mountains and mountain farms that cling dizzily to sheer slopes.
The Flå?m Railway is one of the world's steepest railway lines on normal gauge. The gradient is 55/1000 on almost 80% of the line. The twisting tunnels that spiral in and out of the mountain are manifestations of the most daring and skilful engineering in Norwegian railway history.
At the foot of the mountains you can enjoy the natural beauty of the Flå?m Valley and admire the majestic Aurlandfjord, a branch of the world's longest fjord, the Sognefjord.
