Dovre Railway

The scenic Dovre Railway connects two of Norway's capital cities - the current capital, Oslo, and the historic Viking capital, Trondheim. Nicknamed 'the trail of the trolls', the railway runs on 553km of track, following a meandering route through Norway's inland countryside to provide a fascinating cross-section of scenery. Along its route the railway passes broad farmlands, expansive lakes, babbling rivers, rich deep forests, narrow valleys and high mountain passes, while providing a snapshot of the country's fascinating floral and unique animal and bird life.

After leaving Oslo heading north, the railway runs alongside Mjosa, Norway's largest lake, before continuing to Lillehammer, famously the host city for the 1994 Winter Olympics. As it continues north, the Dovre Railway travels through the valley of Gudbrandsdalen, which is known for its unique landscape and vibrant local communities. The railway crosses Lägen, one of Norway's' largest rivers, and passes Dombas, the connecting station for the Rauma Railway, which is regarded as Norway's most beautiful railway journey.

The train then reaches the highest point of the journey at Hjerkinn, a small village and railway station in Dovre. During the final stages of the journey the railway passes through the shadow of Snøhetta, the highest mountain in the Dovrefjell at 2,280m. Finally the railway line crosses over Gaula, a world-famous salmon river, before reaching the beautiful city of Trondheim.

“A very well organised and enjoyable holiday, accommodation in hotels and on board ship was clean and comfortable. The experience was enhanced by being part of a friendly group of like minded people. The balance of organised excursions and free time meant you didn’t feel that you were just part...
