The trip starts with buss from Bergen, via Voss to Aulandsvangen and to the fantastic viewing platform which towers 650 metres above the fjord below. After approx. a 30 min stop, the journey continues to the little village of Flåm nestled at the end of Aurlandsfjorden, a side fjord off Sognefjord.

In Flåm you can visit the Flåm Museum and watch a film about life and nature in the area.

The main attraction of our trip will be the world renowned Flåm Railway which stretches from Flåm to Myrdal station 865metres above sea level. Almost 80% of the journey is at a 55% incline, and one of the tunnels on the journey is formed as spiral in order to accommodate for this steep incline.  

At Myrdal there will be a short stop to change trains, and we will continue back to Bergen on Bergensbanen.
