Fjord arms cutting through the landscape are a common sight along the Norwegian coastline. After the last ice age, the wild and beautiful scenery of the western Norway was formed by water melting from glaciers and rivers that carved their way through rocks from the earliest period of the earth’s history. When the ice receded, the landscape was complete transformed into high mountains, narrow walleyes and deep fjords you can admire if you visit our area.

The journey from Flåm at the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord, up to the high mountain station at Myrdal on the Bergen Railway, is a railway experience unparalleled in Europe; 20 kilometres long with a descent of 2,838 feet and a gradient of 1 meter in 18! The gradient is unique for this kind of ordinary gauge railway, and to cope with the enormous height difference, the track runs partly through tunnels, which spiral in and out of the mountainside.
