Stop At: Rallarvegen, Aurland, Norway
Rallarvegen (The Navvy Road) is a construction/access road that is now popular as a recreation trail for bicyclists. It was built from 1902 to 1904 in connection with the construction of the Bergen Line. The road is maintained by the Norwegian National Rail Administration as an access road for the railroad. The road runs from Haugastøl Station in the municipality of Hol in Viken county to Finse Station in Ulvik municipality in Vestland county. It continues across the mountains to Myrdal Station in Aurland municipality in Vestland county, and then there is a fork in the road. One path goes north through the Flåmsdalen valley to the village of Flåm on the shore of the Sognefjorden and the other path heads west through the Raundalen valley to Vossevangen. In all, the road is 123 kilometres (76 mi) long: 80 kilometres (50 mi) from Haugestøl to Flåm, and then another 43 kilometres (27 mi) from Myrdal to Voss. The road is named after the "rallar" or navvies, the railway construction workers and "vegen" means road, so the name literally means the "navvy road". The road is now a popular bicycle road. Every year, in the short season from July to September, over 20,000 cyclists travel the route. It is unpaved, and maintained by the railroad with period materials.

Stop At: Aurlandsfjord, Norway
The Aurlandsfjord flows through the municipalities of Aurland, Vik and Lærdal. The 29-kilometre (18 mi) long fjord is a branch off of the main Sognefjorden, Norway's longest fjord. The fjord is deep and narrow, reaching a depth of about 962 metres (3,156 ft) and its width is generally less than 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) wide. About 11 kilometers (6.8 mi) south of the mouth of the fjord, the Nærøyfjord branches off from it to the west. The village of Flåm sits at the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord; other villages along the fjord are Aurlandsvangen and Undredal. Most of the fjord is surrounded by up to 1,800-metre (5,900 ft) tall, steep mountains with little habitation along the fjord except for in a few small valleys.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Naeroyfjord, Norway
The Nærøyfjord is a narrow fjord in Aurland and a branch of the large Sognefjord. The 18-kilometre (11 mi) long fjord is only 250 metres (800 ft) wide in some parts. The river Nærøydalselvi flows down the valley Nærøydalen into the fjord at the village of Gudvangen. Since 2005, the Nærøyfjord has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it has also been rated by National Graphic Society as the world's number one natural heritage site.

Stop At: Flåmsbana, A-Feltvegen 11, 5743 Flåm, Norway
Flåm Railway is a 20.2-kilometer (12.6 mi) long railway line between Flåm and Myrdal. A branch line of the Bergen Line, it runs through the valley of Flåmsdalen and connects the mainline with Sognefjorden. The line's elevation difference is 866 meters (2,841 ft); it has ten stations, twenty tunnels and one bridge. The maximum gradient is 5.5 percent (1:18). Because of its steep gradient and picturesque nature, the Flåm Line is now almost exclusively a tourist service and has become the third-most visited tourist attraction in Norway. Construction of the line started in 1924, with the line opening in 1940. It allowed the district of Sogn access to Bergen and Oslo via the Bergen Line. Electric traction was taken into use in 1944; at first El 9 locomotives were used, and from 1982 El 11. Until 1991, the train connected with a ferry service from Flåm to Gudvangen. In 1992, freight services were terminated, and due to low ticket prices and high operating costs, the line was nearly closed. In 1998, Flåm Utvikling took over marketing and ticket sale for the line, prices were heavily increased and El 17 locomotives were introduced. The trains remain operated by the Norwegian State Railway (NSB), while the line itself is owned and operated by the Norwegian Railway Administration.

Stop At: Kjosfossen Waterfall, Rallarvegen, Myrdal 5742 Norway
Kjosfossen waterfall is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Norway. Its total fall is around 225 metres (738 ft) and here is a small power station on the waterfall which is used to power the Flåm Line railway. The waterfall is located about 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) northeast of Myrdal Station and Flåm Railway passes directly in front of and over the upper part of the waterfall. During the main tourist season in the summer an actress dressed as a legendary Huldra (a seductive forest creature in Scandinavian folklore) dances and sings in front of the waterfall as the trains enter the station for the amusement of the tourists.
