Most people come to Norway for the breathtaking mountains and fjord scenery. But getting to the fjords can be an event in itself. On our trip, we boarded the Bergen Rail which takes visitors on a seven hour tour through some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes. It runs alongside countless rivers, waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, and villages. The train itself is comfortable with large windows for photographing.
