Norway in a nutshell® starts from the railway station in Bergen with a trip on the beautiful Bergen Railway from Bergen to Voss. Bergen Railway is the highest altitude railway in Northern Europe, and around 100 kilometres of the line run through wild mountain terrain. The train station in Bergen only has a few platforms and the train is easy to find.
At the railway station in Voss, you will find the bus, which is clearly marked 'Norway in a nutshell®'. The train is very accurate, but should a delay occur, the bus will wait for the train.
The trip continues to Gudvangen. In summer, the bus goes via the Stalheimskleiva hairpin bends, the 1.5 kilometre stretch of road that winds its way down the Nærøydalen valley from Stalheim.
Once you have arrived in Gudvangen innermost in the Nærøyfjord, you embark on the boat that will take you to Flåm. The Nærøyfjord is one of the narrowest fjords in Europe, and the trip to Flåm takes around 2 hours. In 2005, the Nærøyfjord was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List together with the Geirangerfjord. The fjord is surrounded by tall mountains and is a beautiful sight in both summer and winter. The boat is easy to find in the small harbor area and the bus drops you off right by the harbor.
Flåm is a charming small village surrounded by steep mountainsides, cascading waterfalls and narrow valleys. It is lovely just to stroll around the village, or you can visit the Flåm Railway Museum.
From Flåm, the trip continues on the Flåm Railway, one of the steepest normal gauge railways in the world. The platform is beside the quay and is easy to find. The 20-km-long train ride is a fantastic journey that offers panoramic views of some of the wildest and most magnificent mountain scenery Norway has to offer, including the famous Kjosfossen waterfall. The train ride lasts for roughly an hour.
At Myrdal station, you change trains to Bergen Railway, which takes you back to Bergen. The Myrdal station only have a few tracks so the train is easy to find.
The tour is available all year round. There are no guides on the trip, but it is well marked and easy to find your way around.
