Bergen to Oslo & the Flam Railway

Hello-
I want to take the train from Bergen to Oslo, but am a little confused about the Flam Railway. Would I take the train from Bergen to Myrdal, and then the roundtrip Flam Railway (Myrdal-Flam-Myrdal) and then get back on the Bergen line and continue to Oslo? And would that require three different tickets?
Or is it just as scenic to take the Bergen line all the way to Oslo and skip the Flam Railway?
Thank you!
Steven

    Hi Steven,

    If you're heading from Bergen to Oslo and you plan to take the Flåm Railway on the way, you might want to accomplish it by doing the scenic 'Norway in a Nutshell' tour. This would involve taking a train from Bergen to Voss, a bus from Voss to Gudvangen, a ferry from Gudvangen to Flåm, and then the Flåm Railway from Flåm to Myrdal. In Myrdal, you would connect back up with the Bergen Railway toward Oslo.

    Otherwise, what you would have to do is a round-trip on the Flåm Railway once you get to Myrdal. You would just take the train from Bergen right to Myrdal, where you would begin a round-trip on the Flåm Railway. Once you return back to Myrdal, you would continue on your journey to Oslo.

    Generally, we are able to sell a 'Norway in a Nutshell' pass that can cover all segments of such an itinerary; however, this pass is currently not available for purchase from North America. We hope to have access to sell this pass at some point in the near future. In the meantime, you would have to pay locally for the Voss-Gudvangen bus, the Gudvangen-Flåm boat, and the Flåm Railway from Flåm to Myrdal.

    Through us, you would be able to purchase tickets for the trains that run along the rail line between Bergen and Oslo (i.e. the segments from Bergen to Voss or Bergen to Myrdal and from Myrdal to Oslo). You would do so by entering the segments for which you wish to purchase tickets on our homepage, www.raileurope.com.
