The world's most beautiful train journey

The stunning trip on the Flåm Railway from Flåm deep in the Aurlandsfjord up to the high mountains at Myrdal Station is a unique train journey: the ascent of 866 metres in 20 kilometres represents a gradient of 1 in 18.

The Flåm Railway is one of the steepest standard gauge railways in the world and runs through a number of tunnels as it winds its way up the mountain. The journey up the valley takes about 60 minutes. The train runs slowly and stops at the most spectacular sights.

Round trip – Train and Café

Café Rallaren Myrdal

Café Rallaren is a cozy, family-owned café in the mountains, where you can enjoy a good cup of coffee and a delicious homemade pancake. The café contains many antiques, old pictures and equipment used in the café in the distant past. 

Myrdal at its peak

At its peak, Myrdal had 110 permanent residents. The village had a simple church and the school was built in 1920. The restaurant at Myrdal station opened in 1909 in the same premises now used by Café Rallaren. Today, Myrdal has no permanent residents.

Myrdal history

From ancient times, Myrdal was a mountain farm for the farmers of Flåm Valley. It was off the beaten track and unknown to the outside world. In the late 19th century, when the Bergen Line opened, Myrdal acquired a new significance. From being a forgotten and secluded mountain valley, it became the centre of the country's largest construction project.
