Day 1 - Flåm Mountain Railway and Flåm village

Your three-day programme begins at either Bergen or Oslo train station. You’ll journey to Myrdal station, situated high up in the mountains north of Oslo and east of Bergen, some 870 metres above sea level.

At Myrdal, switch over to Flåm Mountain Railway, famous as one of the most beautiful train journeys in Norway and even the world.

As the train moves down through the mountain into the valley, we’ll make a quick stop at Kjosfossen Waterfall which can be seen from the train plaform. Spot the small power station that supplies energy to your train and, in the summer months, you might even see a singer and dancer do a short performance at the waterfall.

We then arrive in the village of Flåm, where you’ll spend the night in a local hotel. You’ll be able to visit the Flåm Railway Museum to learn more about the history and the engineering that brought about the railway. There’s also Stegastein viewpoint over Aurlandsfjord or a hearty dinner and drinks at Ægir brewery pub.

Day 2 – UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord and Voss village

After breakfast at your hotel, enjoy a two-hour afternoon cruise of Aurlandsfjord and UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord. The mountains along the fjords tower 1,500 metres high, an impressive sight especially when seen from the water.

We disembark at Gudvangen from where a bus will take us through Nærøydalen valley and up the mountain road that leads to the village of Voss, we we’ll stay for one night. Voss is known in Norway for sports, such as skiing, mountain biking, and even a vertical wind tunnel. Your hotel here may be able to organise extra activities for you. Or for something more relaxing, ask your hotel about the Voss cable car that goes up to Mount Hanguren.

Day 3 – Leaving Voss

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before catching the train back from Voss to Bergen or Oslo.
