Getting around by train

Ride the rails
Vy operates most passenger train services in Norway and has a well-developed railway network stretching from Kristiansand in the south to Bodø above the Arctic Circle.

Another railway line of note is the Dovre Railway between Oslo and Trondheim, with its sideline the Rauma Railway between Dombås and Åndalsnes, the alpine town by the fjord.

Oslo is not only the capital of Norway but also the main railway hub. 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 of Stockholm and Copenhagen. 

Ticket information

You can buy train tickets until 90 days prior to departure. The easiest and often cheapest way to book tickets is online on Vy’s website, or at Entur, the travel planner for all kinds of public transportation in Norway. It is also possible to buy tickets from automated machines at most main stations, at customer-service counters, and on board. Please note that you’ll have to pay an extra charge if you choose to buy the ticket on the train.

Every month, Minipris (low-cost) tickets are made available by Vy. These tickets must be purchased at least one day prior to the date of travel and can be bought online and from ticket machines. Once purchased, Minipris tickets are neither exchangeable nor refundable.
