Rallarvegen, Aurland Municipality

(4.8/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The popular bicycle road Rallarvegen takes you through a highland area passing glaciers, streams, lakes, forests, a goat farm, and a series of waterfalls. It dates back some hundred years, when it served to transport men and materials for the Oslo-Bergen Railway Line. Start at 1,000 m (3,280 ft) above sea level, ascend an additional 350 m (1,148 ft), and then start your descent back to the fjords. The unpaved road is mostly gravel with some smaller stony parts, and very steep at times. Ride carefully, since parts of the road remain in bad condition, and the entire way largely unsecured. Note that it can get quite crowded on weekends. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Rallarvegen and many more Flam attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Flam trip itinerary planner.

  • We cycled the whole Rallarvegan to Flam in one day. Whilst it was a strenuous ride, the sights were absolutely spectacular. It was an awesome trail with so much to wonder at and admire all the way. Th...  more »
  • This road was used in the construction of the Oslo-Bergen railway. It descends from an altitude of more than 1000 meters above sea level to the coastal station of flåm. Sometimes it is also called "Dear miners". The local tourist Bureau, you can rent bicycles, climb to the top of the road, by train and then come down. It's a memorable attraction.
