Trollveggen, Romsdalshorn and Karlskråtind are among the mountains you’ll see on the trip. 

You will also see the work of skilled engineers, such as Verma Vendetunnel and Kylling Bridge along the Rauma Rail. The Rauma Rail is not only a train trip; it is also a magnificent nature experience. There are daily tourist trains on the Rauma Rail during the summer season. Contact Åndalsnes Tourist information for information and tickets.

The train has huge panorama windows,so you can sit back and enjoy the view. The train takes you over 32 bridges amongst them, the famous Kylling Bridge.The train follows the Rauma River for most part of the journey. Strong, clear colours as fas as the eye can see.
