The Flåmsbana railway line in Norway is one of the steepest in Europe. Despite being relatively short, reaching only 19 kilometers in length, it offers a very intense experience.

It is a local railway in the Sogn og Fjordane area, approximately 216 kilometers from Oslo. Flåmsbana is actually a connecting line between the town of Flåm, situated on the shores of the Aurlandsfjord, and Myrdal, a stop on the line between Oslo and Bergen, which dates back to 1909.

Construction of this railway line began in 1923 and lasted 20 years. The workers who built the line worked a total of about 6 165 350 hours. Nowadays, this line is used by tourists.

The line runs through the mountain valleys where the Flåmselva River flows. It flows out of Lake Reinungavatnet near Myrdal station. Below this lake is also the Kjosfossen stop, from where there is a beautiful view of the waterfall. Here tourists can also see a fairy descending to the waterfall accompanied by music. It is a fascinating tourist attraction.

The train only stops at two places. There are only two stops: at the train passing Berekvam and at the waterfall.

At the bottom, the railway line passes through a valley where the surrounding peaks reach heights of up to 1400 m. The station in Flåm is just 2 meters above sea level.
