Good to Know

These day and night trains from Oslo to Trondheim and the trains on to Bodø are now operated by SJ NORD.

This is a journey with multiple scenic highlights,

  • After departure from Eidsvoll there are views across the valley carved by the River Vorma
  • Then to the north, after the train swings across a brudge there are lake side views on the left, but what is unusual is that this waterside section of the railway has recently been constructed for higher speeds, so this is the part of the trip with a wow factor!
  • As the train arrives in Hamar it crosses a spectacular bridge
  • North of Hamar there are views there on the left when facing the direction of travel over the Mjøsa, which is the largest lake in Norway
  • Then for 20 mins (ish) south of Lillehammer there are some further views over the Mjøsa.
  • After Lillehammer the railway spends hours travellling through the valley carved by the Gudbrandsdalslågen river, with views from both sides of the train until Dombas.
