From Oslo to Bergen by train

If you haven’t done this yet, now is the right time! You don’t want to travel during the cold and dark winter days and I’m sure you will like it better during spring or right after or during Easter time. There are four daily departures from Oslo and Bergen and the 7 hour journey. It won’t be boring at all as the nature varies and changes from town to town.


This is a journey that you need to experience at least once in you life time. Specially for those of you who live in Oslo or Bergen there is no excuse to not do this.

The highest point is at 1222 m above sea level

Actually there is no other train ride between two cities in Europe is at a higher altitude than the one between Oslo and Bergen.

The highest point of this route is at Finse, 1,222 meters above sea level. The train also passes over a stretch called Hardangervidda, which is the highest mountainous plateau in Europe.

You will experience the amazing Norwegian nature during this journey, specially the part from Gol to Geilo through Ål and further to Voss through Finse.
