After two nights in Oslo, Greg and I headed to the train station to catch the train for Myrdal, Norway. On our way, we rode past handsome, little Norwegian villages and through stark, stunning landscapes and ended up in Myrdal where we caught the Flåm Railway at 865 meters above sea level.
The Flåm Railway took us on a 20-kilometer ride through the spectacular wild countryside and hairpin turns. After about an hour, we arrived in Flåm. The trip is advertised as the “one of the most beautiful railway lines in the world” and I will not argue that point.
The photos I took generally don’t do the scenery justice. I’d like to blame it on the fact that I was on a moving train and taking pictures through window glare, but the fact is, it is so beautiful here that no photo could do it justice.
The first three photos are shots taken before Myrdal and the last three are taken on the Flåm Railway.
