Trip with the Flåm Railway

Study Bergen's next trip goes to Stegastein and Flåm on Thursday 25 October. You are in for a beautiful scenery.

The trip starts with bus from Bergen, via Voss to Aurlandsvangen and to the fantastic viewing platform Stegastein (weather permitting). After a 30 min stop, the journey continues to the little village of Flåm nestled at the end of Aurlandsfjorden, a side fjord to Sognefjorden. Here you have 2 hours to enjoy the view and visit the museum if you like.

The main attraction of our trip will be the world renowned Flåm Railway which stretches from Flåm to Myrdal station 865 metres above sea level. Almost 80 percent of the journey is at a 55 percent incline, and one of the tunnels on the journey is formed as spiral in order to accommodate for this steepness.

At Myrdal there will be a short stop to change trains, and we will continue back to Bergen on Bergensbanen.

375 NOK for students attending UiB, HVL, NHH, NLA and VID 
650 NOK other students/Ph.D
850 NOK full price (Full price tickets are only available if you are attending the event as a guest of a student attending the event).
