Description

This tour combines a fantastic nature experience together with a fascinating architectural insight into the making of this seventeen kilometre long Flekkefjordbanen rail track.

From the year 1904 until 1990, the Flekkefjordbanen rail track connected Flekkefjord with the south Norway rail link, Sørlandsbanen. The Flekkefjordbanen link was an important connection for the locals who frequented the train to meet with friends and to visit other towns. The last journey the Flekkefjordbanen made was on New Years Eve 1990, travelling from Flekkefjord to Sira town. A railway era was over.

The Flekkefjords’ Rail Track Friends are working towards preserving the track and turn it into a living museum, using the slogan ‘cultural salvation through active use’. The persistence and hard work has paid off and today the seventeen kilometres long rail track has been put forward for a cultural protection scheme.

Rail biking on parts of this line has become a popular sport amongst locals, visitors and conference delegates. The activity is suitable for young and old alike. The track takes you through a beautiful and varied natural landscape and you can’t fail to be impressed by the architectural wonder of this construction taking you through no less than seventeen tunnels.

Tours every day during summer 
Outside times of guided tours, rail biking can be arranged directly with Flekkefjord’s Rail Track Friends. Season: April - October
Price: 300 NOK pr bike
Remember to bring snacks and a camera! 
Picnic tables and WC at Flikkeid. Bring a coat for the cold tunnels.

For more information or to rent a rail bike, contact Carl Fredrik – on mobile number 97657933
