Train in beautifull surroundings, Norway in a Nutshell.

The Flåm Railway has been described as one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world–and is also one of the steepest. You start at sea level and within an hour, you will have travelled through 20 tunnels, past many viewpoints and photo stops in the narrow valley and end up at 867 metres above sea level.

The Norwegian huldra, a seductive forest creature found in Scandinavian folklore, dancing in the waterfall is a highlight for many.  The day tour also takes you out on a fjord cruise on the beautiful and wild Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord. Nature here is wild and overwhelming. The sides of the mountains are steep, and part of this excursion involves driving along such a mountain side by bus. 

Stalheimskleiva is one of the steepest roads in Northern Europe. On its way to the top, the road winds its way up 13 sharp hairpin bends, while the large waterfalls come thundering straight down the shortest route.  This day tour is beautiful, picturesque and encapsulates Norway.
