Meet your private driver and vehicle for a train station transfer.

Transfer from Oslo to Flam today by train, with a connection in Myrdal. The Bergen Railway is a unique experience on Northern Europe's highest-altitude railway line. One of the greatest challenges is the harsh and quickly changing weather. The line is exposed to deep low-pressure centers from the west, which can mean strong winds and heavy snow for part of the year. Keeping the railway open demands great effort and technical expertise. Today, skilled workers, effective equipment, tunnels and snow tunnels make the Bergen Railway one of the safest and most comfortable ways of travelling between Oslo and Bergen. The line is consistently ranked among the top rail experiences in the world. Four stops before the end of the line in Bergen, you'll disembark in Myrdal.

In Myrdal, board a cogwheel train to Flam on the Flam Railway. The scenic 12-mile route between Myrdal and Flam is one of the steepest non-rack railway tracks in the world and provides some of Norway's wildest and most magnificent scenery. On the ride you can see rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascade down the side of steep, snow-capped mountains, and mountain farms cling dizzily to sheer slopes. There are also a few spirals along the route which allow trains to rise on a steady curve until it has completed a loop, passing over itself as it gains height, allowing the railway to gain vertical elevation in a relatively short distance.

Take a short, self-guided walking transfer. Hotels in Flam are all located within just a few minutes of the Train Station.

Setting out from the pier on a small, specially-designed RIB boat, your captain and guide will take you and a small group of participants on a picturesque fjord safari up the Aurlandsfjord and into the Nærøyfjord, which makes up part of the West Norwegian Fjords UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cruise toward Gudvangen at the end of the fjord, using Bakka Stray as your turning point. This is the narrowest part of the fjord where the dramatic cliffsides converge, creating an ever impressive stretch of scenery. You'll head back to Flam on the other side of the fjord for a different view, stopping along the way to admire the scenery, looking to spot seals, porpoises, and eagles. Hear about the fjord, local history, and the wildlife, along with tales, and legends, from various places of interest. At Undredal, you'll go ashore to enjoy this little village squeezed in between a tall mountain. Inhabited by 65 people and almost 500 goats, it's no surprise that the specialty of this village is the production of goat cheese, which you'll get to sample at a local cafe! You will also hear about the tradition of cheese production, and you listen to folktales and folk songs before returning to Flam.

Enjoy an included dinner this evening at Fretheim Hotel. The hotel restaurant, Arven, has a view looking straight toward the fjord, and locally-sourced ingredients is at the heart of its cuisine, which is only natural when some of the best producers of cheese, meat, fruits and vegetables are right outside the door!

Accommodation: Fretheim (4*)

All 122 comfortable guestrooms offer views of the hiking trails and mountains surrounding the property, or the beautiful fjord. Dine at the hotel’s restaurant, which prides itself on serving locally grown and raised ingredients, while offering views looking straight towards the fjord.

  • Irene Y. — September 13, 2018 — Europe

    This trip was just what we were looking for, a private tour of England, Scotland and Dublin. Julie C. was awesome! She and I worked together to figure out what my family and I wanted to do. I could have never done it without her! The cars/guides were waiting at the airport for us. Everyone associated with Kensington Tours was so helpful and kind. The location of the 3 hotels, we stayed in, were amazing!! We walked everywhere! Each tour, we were scheduled for, went smoothly, and on time. The tour guides were so smart and informative about the places we went. I didn't stand in one hotel concierge line. My tickets and vouchers were printed out and in hand ahead of time. Julie even researched and scheduled horseback riding in the Dublin Mountains, which they hadn't handled before. What a highlight that was!! This trip was everything I asked for. I will be using Kensington Tours and Julie again!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our entire trip to Greece. Everything went as planned, our hotels met and exceeded our expectations. The tour guides were all marvelous - knowledgeable, personal, patient, organized and pleasant to be with. And our sunset cruise in Santorini was superb - first class catamaran, crew and their other passengers were great to be with. We met a couple who also were frequent Kensington Tours clients and we all agreed you are our top choice when it comes to travel tours. Thank you for another unforgettable trip!
