This is a route you can’t drive on your motorcycle, but its worth your time if you are in the Flåm area.
Flåmsbana (Flåm railroad) is 20.4 kilometers long from Myrdal station on the Bergensbanen to Flåm by the Aurlandsfjord. Flåmsbana is a spectacular tourist attraction due to the dramatic nature and the steep desent from the mountain.
The line was opened for operation in 1941 and got electric engines in 1944. The line section from Myrdal down to Flåm was built as a sideline to the Bergen line and created connections to settlements and places along the Sognefjord.
Flåmsbana is considered one of Norway’s engineering masterpieces.
If you find the train tickets to be too expencive, it can be an alternative to ride you bike up the narrow road Flåmdalsvegen. You can see it on the map, alongside the railway from Flåm towards Myrdal. It will not take you all the way up, but the scenary is specacular.
