Take a ride on The Flam Railway to experience some of the wildest and most picturesque landscapes that Norway has to offer. Voted the "Best Train Journey in the World" by Lonely Planet in 2014, this rail line will take you from sea level to the top of Myrdal mountain at 863 m (2,831 ft) in just one hour. Sit in your warm coach as you cross valleys, rivers, and forests, and listen to the on-board commentary about the history of the railroad. Pass by the Rjoandefossen Waterfall, which spills over the side of the mountain from 140 m (460 ft) above. The diverse scenery makes for a great trip regardless of the season.
