Flåmsbana (Flåm Railway)
Flåmsbana (Flåm Railway) Review
This trip is only 20 km (12 mi) long, but it takes 40 to 55 minutes (one-way) to travel the 2,850 feet up the steep mountain gorge. The line includes 20 tunnels and a bridge. A masterpiece of Norwegian engineering, it took 20 years to complete, and is today one of Norway's prime tourist attractions, with more than 600,000 visiting each year.
