During this train journey, you witness one thundering waterfall after another and make plenty of stops at the most scenic spots, including a full stop at the mighty Kjosfosse Waterfall. Tourists can discover this dramatic "Flamsbana" any time of the year, spring and summer grant travelers with nice weather, waterfalls rushing down the mountains, greenery, and longer days.
