Ride the Flåm Railway to the fjords in Norway

Northern Europe is home to a plethora of breathtaking destinations, and Norway stands out as a must-visit country in the region. With its picturesque landscapes of towering cliffs, majestic glaciers, and cascading waterfalls, Norway offers a natural paradise like no other. One of the most spectacular ways to experience the Norwegian fjords is by taking a journey on the Flåm Railway. This railway route boasts the title of being the steepest and narrowest in the world, providing travelers with an unforgettable adventure.

Staffer Shannon recounts her experience, “The Bergen fjords are truly awe-inspiring, and riding the Flåm Railway was an absolutely breathtaking experience! I visited in March, and the landscape transformed dramatically during the short journey. Starting from Flåm at the bottom, it felt like spring, but as we ascended the mountain to Myrdal, winter embraced us. This is undoubtedly one of the most memorable travel experiences I have ever had.” The Flåm Railway is included in our Highlights of Scandinavia: Sweden, Norway & Denmark tour and our Scandinavia: The Capitals & the Fjords tour.
