Global Glimpses: Flam Railway, Norway


I snapped this photo somewhere en route from Oslo to Bergen, on the famously scenic train line that links Norway’s capital with its second largest city on the southwestern coast.

It’s one of the world’s steepest stretches of rail, with twisting tunnels that spiral in and out of the mountain. Rivers cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascaded down the side of snow-capped mountains and mountain farms clung precariously to sheer slopes.

Oslo to Bergen by train sounds like it’s worth every minute and every expensive Norwegian krone.
