Getting around by train

Ride the rails
The Norwegian State Railways NSB 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.

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 NSB’s website. 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 NSB. 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.

Norwegian passenger train services

The Norwegian Railways
The Norwegian State Railways NSB takes you through Norway, across 2,577 bridges and through 733 tunnels. The northernmost station is the city of Bodø. In 2018, NSB was honoured as Norway’s most sustainable company by Sustainable Brand Index. Yearly NSB performs more than 60 million passenger journeys.

Flytoget Airport express
Flytoget is a swift connection that moves you 50 kilometres from Oslo Central Station to Oslo Airport in less than 20 minutes, and from its opposite end station in Drammen in an hour.

The Setesdalsbanen in the southernmost part of Norway was established in 1896 and closed in 1962, but reopened as a museum railway just two years after. The over 100 years old steam trains traffic a narrow railway track between Kristiansand and Byglandsfjord.
