The Bergen Railway was finished in 1909 and improved significantly the communication between the capital and the Western part of Norway. At that time it was a huge challenge to build the railway line - much because of the rough weather. Great engineering works, snow clearing during the winter and efficient and modern equipment are necessary for the railway line to run.

The highest point on the railway line is Finse, 1222 m above sea level. From Finse or from Haugastøl you can experience the famous Rallarvegen (the Navvies' road) by bike, which ends in beautiful Flåm. You can also combine the journey on the Bergen Railway with the fantastic Flåm Railway.

Also check out Fjord Tours: many trips include a stretch of the Bergen Railway.
