  • Nice museum to visit while waiting for the train. Contains a lot of history, pictures and items of the old railroad. It was something to build in its time. 
  • Museum Exposition tells about how, this railway was built, and it is 20 km from 20th tunnels with climbing to an altitude of 866 meters. We have had some free time before your trip on the flåm railway. Part of it is we usefully spent in the Museum. Before entering the Museum souvenir shop is located. It's small, and that is quite unusual for Norway-free. Probably because it is already included in the price of its sizeable trip on the flåm railway.

  • The landscapes breathtaking, an incredible height and memorable surprises: this trip in this typical train has left indelible traces in our minds, more than a year after our experience. We will definitely return and will be always as fascinated by what the Norway is able to offer in show.

  • Very good. Probably I read about it too much and so I expected more, but nevertheless very scenic and good. However if you are talking about scenic, then I liked the rail stretch after Myrdal much more which does not come on Flam railway but comes on Myrdal to Oslo rail route.
  • To enjoy this ride you have to sit near the window. It has many tunnels on the way so be prepared to have glimpses of beautiful views and then back inthe tunnel. It stops for 5 minutes at the beautiful waterfalls on the way, so you can get out to have a look and hop back on, which is by itself an experience to have.
  • Quite an incredible train ride through the mountains and valleys of Norway. It's definitely in my top 2 train rides ever! (The other was in Brasil.) I went early September - so a bit off-season - and had a whole row of seats to myself and could wander back and forth in the car to get a photo from the side of the train with the best view.
  • Quite possibly the most scenic 20 km railroad in the world. Rivals the Toltec Cumbres narrow gauge line in New Mexico and Colorado.
  • Yes, it’s beautiful and amazing, but it lasts only 20 minutes and totally not worth the inconvenience. In summer, they over pack the trains. (Doesn’t matter if you have a ticket for your reservation; you may be standing.) Also, the station is so remote, there’s no other choice to take the railway down to Flam (another overpriced locale) and hop a boat through the fjords to Bergen. The sensible alternate is to take a train from Olso to Bergen and see amazing Lord of the Rings landscapes, stay overnight in Bergen, and do a one-day fjord tour out of there.
