Europe's most scenic train journey

The Golden Train takes you on a magical journey through the stunning nature of Romsdalen. Lean back in your seat and follow the thrilling storytelling as we trace the emerald beauty of the Rauma River.

Make sure you get your million dollar shot when the train slows down at the most important landmarks. As the train returns to Åndalsnes, new sides of the history are told, to ensure you get a new experience on your way back.

Highlights on Rauma Railway

Almost hugging Trollveggen, you are treated with spectacular views of Europe’s largest vertical rock face. Marvel at Verma Waterfall as it plunges 380 meters down from the mountain edge, and see one of Norway’s finest engineering pieces – Kylling Bru – up close. This stone carved railway bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks in the area. Hold on to your hat on the 180 degree tunnel turn on your way to Bjorli before returning to Åndalsnes.

Sensational views of high peaks, jagged rock faces and mountain slopes leading up to windswept plateaus –  Europe's most scenic railway Lonely Planet

The unforgettable journey of a lifetime

A Golden Piece
of History

Not only does this journey take you through beautiful sceneries – you will also travel through an important piece of the Norwegian history. During World War II 30 soldiers were given a very important and top secret assignment: Save Norway's gold holdings!

The Golden Transport Operation managed to bring 50 tons of gold from Oslo, Norway to safety in USA and Canada. Part of this amazing journey took place on this very railway. Learn all about the dramatic details of the operation as you journey through this former escape route.

Romsdalen, the wildest Norway has to offer

Truly one of the most spectacular destinations in the Nordics. Norwegian Travel provides a wide range of breathtaking experiences. From the Romsdalen Gondola, stretching over 1,3 kilometres up mountain to Eggen Restaurant, to the engineering masterpiece of Trollstigen, one of Europe's most majestic roads. And now we add The Golden Train to the list, making Romsdalen the go-to destination.

Let Romsdalen be the next stop on your holiday in Norway. We welcome you to an unforgettable journey.
