About Rail Travel in Norway

For the rail traveler, the mountainous and elongated country of Norway is the crown jewel of Scandinavia. From its snowcapped mountains to its scenic fjords warmed by the Gulf Stream, much of the country’s varied land- and seascapes can be seen from your train window. The rail ride between the eastern capital city of Oslo and its western outpost of historic Bergen (gateway to the fjord district) is one of the most scenic in Europe.

Norwegian rail engineers have defied nature and laid tracks through dizzying, difficult terrain that was once accessible only to mountain goats and spry adventurers. Routes are not comprehensive, especially as you go into the far north toward Lapland and the Midnight Sun, but rail lines are gloriously scenic, and the major towns and their myriad attractions are easily reached by train.
