The Rauma Railway
A trip on the Rauma Railway gives you a unique opportunity to experience at close hand some of the most spectacular scenery Norway has to offer.
Once on board the train, all you need to do is sit back, gaze through the large windows and enjoy your journey through a landscape of wild magnificence full of contrasts.
You will see views ranging from precipitous crags plunging vertically to the valley floor among majestic, jagged alpine peaks to lush, curving hillsides climbing towards great rounded mountain plateaus that extend into unspoiled national parks.
The beautiful, emerald-green River Rauma will follow you, right outside the train window, for much of your trip. The river’s character is constantly shifting – one moment flowing gently between small beaches of white sand before transforming into a wild torrent, cascading down rapids at breakneck speed.
The train will run especially slowly through the most spectacular scenery, and at the famous Kylling Railway Bridge and at Trollveggen, Europe’s highest perpendicular mountain wall, the train will make a complete stop.
- The Rauma Railway runs between Åndalsnes (4 metres above sea level) and Dombås (659 metres above sea level). At Dombås there are train connections to/from Oslo and Trondheim.
- On board the train you will be guided in Norwegian, English and German. And all passengers will receive a new brochure describing the highlights of your journey and a map of the train line.
- You can buy snacks of a vending machine.
- The sightseeing trains at the Rauma Railway runs from 29th of May to 26th of August.
