Flåmsbana, Norway

Scandinavia

01 | Flåmsbana – The train brings you from the Myrdal ski resort to Flåm, skirting the longest and deepest of the fjords, the Sognefjorden. This 40-minute journey meanders through the narrow valley across a landscape of spectacular waterfalls and towering mountain peaks. Don't miss the spectacular sight of the Kjosfossen waterfall.

02 | Travel from Oslo to Bergen – this route offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Norway…deep fjords and snow-capped mountain peaks, skirting frozen lakes and grassy plains. The seasons seem to change as you make your way along the route of this superb and unforgettable journey.

03 | The 1,300 km of the Inlandsbanan – From Kristinehamn (south) to Gällivare (north), the railway line, open in summer, crosses dense forests where you can spot reindeer and elk. The train will take you to Lapland, above the Arctic Circle.

Italy

04 | From La Spezia to Levanto – Take a trip on this magnificent railway line running along the coastline of the Cinque Terre and you'll feel like you're floating above the water as you journey from one picturesque village to the next.

A 3-hour journey through breathtaking and pristine scenery at an altitude of over 2,200 m.

Wind your way through the mountains, pass through 19 tunnels and cross the Séjourné viaduct and the magnificent Gisclard suspension bridge.

08 | Around the ravines with the Mont-Blanc Express – This train crosses the entire Chamonix valley and then continues into Switzerland: mysterious forests, wild gorges and vertiginous peaks unfold before you...while you also enjoy the mountainous and unspoilt Trient valley.
