A trip on the Rauma Line gives you a unique opportunity to experience at close hand some of the most spectacular scenery Norway has to offer. In only one hour, the train will take you from beautiful fjords to the wild mountains. Once onboard, all you need to do is sit back, gaze through the large windows and enjoy your journey through a landscape of wild magnificence full of contrasts.
The train will run especially slowly through the most spectacular scenery, and make photo stops at the famous Kylling Bridge and at Trollveggen, Europe’s highest perpendicular mountain wall. The beautiful, emerald-green River Rauma will follow you, right outside the train window, for much of your trip. The river’s character is constantly shifting – one moment flowing gently between small beaches of white sand before transforming into a wild torrent, cascading down rapids at breakneck speed.
The sightseeing trains on the Rauma Line run from 30 May through 30 August. Choose between two scenic rides; the one hour-ride from Åndalsnes to Bjorli, or a 1 hour and 40 minutes-ride from Åndalsnes to Dombås. In this period these trains slow down here and there to give tourists the best possible view from the trains. The rest of the year, these trains are 10-15 minutes faster than in the summer.
