Norway has a well-developed network of award-winning scenic railway lines, from Kristiansand in the south to Bodø, above the Arctic Circle.
Trains connect Norway's major cities, and most lines run through the capital city, Oslo. Norway’s extensive railway network spreads out in a rough fan shape from Oslo, which is also well-connected by train with the other Scandinavian capitals, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
Travelling by train in Norway offers amazing views, with many routes passing through stunning landscapes of mountains, fjords, countryside and lakes. The most famous line is the Bergen Railway, named one of the world’s best train rides by Lonely Planet. It runs between Oslo and Bergen across Hardangervidda, Europe’s highest mountain plateau. It also connects to the incredible Flåm Railway, one of the world’s steepest railway lines.
The Dovre Railway between Oslo and Trondheim, and its branch line The Rauma Railway between Dombås and Åndalsnes, the mountaineering capital in Fjord Norway, are other award-winning lines that take you through some pretty amazing scenery.
It's often easiest (and cheapest) to book tickets on the train company's website or app. You can also use the travel planner Entur, which provides travel suggestions for all kinds of public transport in Norway. Tickets are also available from machines at most main stations, at ticket counters, and on board. Note that there is a surcharge if you buy your ticket onboard the train, and your seat might already be reserved.
For the cheapest tickets, look for 'low fare' tickets. Bear in mind that most of the cheapest tickets can't be refunded, so if you're looking for flexibility, consider buying a 'flex ticket'.
