Norway: Oslo to Bergen
Few European train journeys can rival the spectacular mountain scenery of the Swiss Alps, but Norway offers something Switzerland’s lofty peaks don’t: fjords. The Bergen Railway takes you on a dramatic seven-hour ride from the country’s capital, Oslo, to the beautiful seaside city of Bergen. There’s plenty of incredible nature and scenery in between, including the Hardangervidda, one of Europe’s highest plateaus. For an extra special treat, get off at Myrdal and ride the famously steep Flåm Railway, which rises from sea level to an altitude of more than 2,800 feet in just an hour.
