We travelled from Bjorli station to Andalsnes on a vintage train, the carriage had comfortable seats and spectacular views were had from the train. The cost of a return trip from Bjorli to Andalsnes is 600 NOK (£25) but well worth the cost, recommended. A...More

A rail line that has stunning view as it criss-crosses the valley river. In summer there is commentary on the way from dombås to Åndalsnes. One of the prettiest railways in europe.

Undoubtedly a beautiful railway, but we felt that the train journey was too quick and there were little or no opportunities to take photos! A great deal of the foliage and trees could be cut away from the trackside to improve the viewing possibilities.

We booked this through our cruise ship and it was very enjoyable. It was a train ride to Bjorli station and a bus ride back. Having a guide talk about the area was helpful.

This was a fantastic tour with the Norwegian State Railway - Museum Train, restored and with a perfect day, but -22 degrees C at Bjorli station. I will be back !! A must for Norway views.

We had a wonderful train trip on the Rauma line. The train was very comfortable and clean. The waterfalls and landscape were so beautiful. Once we got to the town of Åndalsnes, we rented a car so that we could drive the famous Trollstigen road.

It can be smart to by the ticket asap. Go to Nsb.no , if you are lucky you can get it super cheep (in Norway the ticket get more and more expensive the closer the traveling day you get and often they get sold out.
