Into Fjord Country
After checking out, go to the train station and catch the morning train in the direction of Bergen. After a scenic ride, disembark at Myrdal Station, the highest train station on the Oslo-Bergen line. Situated at 867 meters above sea level, there is no road connection to the station which makes for a unique, adventurous feel.
This stop is also the arrival/departure station for the Flåm Railway. Here, pick up your rental bikes at Café Rallaren, located in the station building, and cycle the last part of the famous “Rallarvegen” bicycle road. It is about 20km down to Flåm along easy downhill terrain, surrounded by spectacular scenery.
Your luggage will be sent with the Flåm Railway and will be picked up at Flåm Station, where you return the bicycles. Head over to “Ægir BryggeriPub”, a charming Norse-style microbrewery that serves Viking-esque food and ale. You will be served 5 beers with your meal, each one paired with an authentic local dish.
Enjoy the fjords, embrace the culture, and get acquainted with food & drink of Norway in this cosy setting. Following your meal, you will receive a taxi transfer to Aurland and your accommodation.
