Bergen to Oslo Train – First leg of #WBTEurail trip
Post updated: [07/16/2018]
Our first trip using our Eurail passes starts in Bergen, Norway. The NSB train from Bergen to Norway, also called the Bergen Railway, is a scenic route crossing Norway from west to east in just under 7 hours. Not too long after we leave the Bergen station on the Bergen to Oslo train, we come across beautiful fjords, snowy mountains, and rushing rivers. The route is scenic from the start!
The train itself is very comfortable, clean, and has many modern facilities. Free Wi-Fi that worked for a most of our trip helps you keep connected – if you can draw your eyes away from the beautiful surroundings!
Seating Options for Everyone – NSB Komfort Upgrade
On the Bergen to Oslo train there are several seating options to fit many styles and budgets.
NSB Komfort – included with a Eurail 1st class ticket. If you are buying an individual ticket the cost to upgrade to a Komfort seat is 90 NOK (approximately $ 12 USD). These seats are slightly larger than standard class seats.
There are tables and plugs at each seat making it easy to catch up with some work, watch a movie on your laptop, or just to spread out a little. Free coffee and tea beverages are available at a self-serve station located in the middle of the car.
NSB Familie – An entire care devoted to traveling families! The family car has quite a few amenities to keep little ones entertained during the trip. There are children’s books, films, and a separate playroom all designed to keep children busy. Fold down changing tables in the restrooms and an area to heat food and bottles makes it easy for parents to travel with even the youngest of passengers.
NSB Standard – are very comfortable seats with a footrest at each one so you can stretch out. Even though these seats may be considered 2nd class, they provide much more space and legroom than airplanes are definitely a comfortable and affordable option.
Dining Options Onboard the Bergen to Oslo Train
The dining car has small snacks as well as hearty meals. Stews, sandwiches, wraps and even a reindeer roast with veggies were all available on our train. Soft drinks, water, fruit juice, beer, and wine are also available. Prices are somewhat reasonable considering we found Norway to be pretty expensive.
The Bergen Station
The Bergen Station is much smaller than most of the rail stations we have seen, but it provides all the necessities one needs while awaiting the train. The NSB Website has a great listing for all the train stations they service including address details and other public transportation servicing them such as public buses, trams, or even taxis.
