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.
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.
The travel planner Entur gives you travel suggestions from door to door by bus, train, metro, boat, and aeroplane, whether you want to check when the next bus is leaving from your destination, or you are planning a holiday from Vestfold to Vesterålen.
