Day 1

Your three-day scenic tour starts with a train journey from either Bergen or Oslo station to Myrdal mountain station, situated 867 metres above sea level.  

There, you’ll transfer to the Flåm Mountain Railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world. For the next hour, you’ll be glued to the window of your vintage train compartment as the train descends the mountain into the valley, passing farmsteads as it follows the river north.   

Before arriving in the village of Flåm, the train will stop at Kjosfossen Waterfall for five minutes, allowing you to disembark onto the platform to take photos.  

Once in Flåm, you’ll be able to spend time at the Flåm Railway Museum to learn more about how this amazing feat of engineering came to be. Spend the night at a hotel in Flåm. 

Day 2

After lunch the next day, an electric boat then brings you out onto the waters of Aurlandsfjord for a two-hour cruise around to narrow and UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord. The mountains that flank the fjords are between 1,400 and 1,600 metres high, creating a truly spectacular landscape.  

We disembark the boat at Gudvangen where a bus meets us to drive us through  Nærøydalen valley. We’ll take the mountain road that leads to the village of Voss where you’ll spend the night. 

Day 3

Today, you’ll be able to catch the train back from Voss to Bergen or Oslo.
