One of the greatest ways to experience Norway is to add a train journey to your list of travel must-dos. The Oslo to Bergen train which takes about 7 hours is a real rail adventure bringing out one-of-a-kind views of Norway to accompany you during the trip. The Oslo Bergen railway is noted worldwide for its scenic beauty; villages, fjords, rivers, and the countryside are just some of the incredible things you get to see as you travel. These trains are very well-equipped, safe, and comfortable, and are operated by NSB, the Norwegian National Railways. What is more, the trains depart from the center of Oslo (Oslo S Station) and arrive in the heart of Bergen as well (to the Bergen Central Station), therefore, it is very easy to reach both stations using public transportation and to make your way around town upon arrival.
