Day to Day Itinerary:

Departure from Oslo to Drammen, the first major stop. From here the line begins to head into wilder land. The train follows the course of valleys and rivers, and spectacular mountain scenery. After Drammen, there are several interesting stops on the route to Vikersund and Hønefoss. The train continues to Nesbyen, Gol and Geilo, which are all winter sports centres. Through Hallingdalen the track climbs, with some sharp inclines, to one of Europe’s highest mountain plateaus – to Finse, with the Rallar Road (Rallarvegen, the old navvies' road) and Hardangerjøkulen glacier nearby. Finse is the highest station on the line at 1222m. The line climbs to 1237m and the views of the plateau stretch for miles and between Finse and Myrdal. Myrdal is on the maritime coast of Norway.. The only branch line on the route, the Flåmsbana to, Flåm leaves from here. It is one of several stations on the line that there are no roads to. Those on the Norway in a Nutshell tour get off here for another train, then a combination of boat and bus to get to Bergen. Through some more  waterfalls, forests and beautiful fjords and the journey ends in Bergen.
