Flåm Railway Tours

6 Reviews
Flåm Railway
Winding its way through lush river gorges, climbing steep peaks, and passing dramatic waterfalls, the Flåm Railway is one of Europe’s most spectacular train journeys. Running 12.5 miles (20 kilometers) between the Norwegian towns of Flåm and Myrdal, the train is among Norway’s most popular tourist attractions, offering incredible views over the UNESCO World Heritage-listed fjords.

The Basics
It’s possible to complete the round-trip journey from Flåm to Myrdal in about two hours, including stops at Kjosfossen waterfall and Myrdal. For an even more unforgettable journey, combine the ride with a cruise around the Sognefjord, Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, or soak up the scenery on a self-guided transfer from Bergen to Oslo that includes a ride on the Bergen Railway and a ferry cruise across the Naeroyfjord fjord.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There are restrooms, cafés, luggage storage, and souvenir shops at Myrdal and Flåm stations.
  • There’s time to get off and take in the views at Kjosfossen waterfall and Myrdal (for round-trip passengers), so dress accordingly for the weather as it can get chilly in the mountains. 
  • Wheelchair access is available at all stations.

How to Get There
It’s possible to ride the Flåm Railway in either direction, from Flåm or Myrdal.  Flåm Station is located in Flåm, Aurland, a roughly 10-minute walk from the Flåm ferry port on the Sognefjord.

When to Get There
The Flåm Railway runs daily year-round, but there are more than double the number of trains running in summer than winter. Those hoping to take advantage of the hiking trails and outdoor activities around Myrdal should plan a visit in spring or summer, but winter visitors benefit from magical views of glittering fjords and snow-dusted peaks.

The Flåm Railway by the Numbers
The Flåm Railway ranks as one the steepest trains in the world, with a gradient of 5.5 percent reaching a height of 2,841 feet (866 meters) in just 12.5 miles (20 kilometers). Opened in 1940, the train took almost 20 years to build and includes 20 tunnels and one railway bridge—an impressive engineering feat.
