Train travel in Norway
The NSB – Norwegian State Railways, run comfortable trains which run on a network of more than 4000 km of rails. NSB’s routes travel through scenic countryside, offering non-stop panorama views of beautiful, untouched natural areas through suburbs, over mountains and by the fjord.

The most famous of these rail stretches is the Bergen Railway, Oslo-Bergen over the high plateau Hardangervidda, the roof of Norway. Other spectacular railway lines are The Dovre Railway from Oslo and Trondheim with it’s side line the Rauma Railway between Dombås and Åndalsnes, the alpine town by the fjord. If you would like to travel through a different type of landscape, with a spectacular light and the possibility to see the midnight sun and the Northern lights travel north on the Northern Railway between Trondheim and Bodø.

Long distance trains are running on the main lines; The Southern Line, The Bergen Line and the Dovre Line. These have comfortable and adjustable seats. New diesel tilting trains operate on the Northern Line, The Rauma Line and The Rørøs Line.
