    Stop At: The Bergen Railway, Oslo Central Train Station, Oslo Norway

    The Bergen Railway is a 371-kilometre (231 mi) long scenic standard gauge railway line between Bergen and Hønefoss. The name is often applied for the entire route from Bergen to Oslo where the passenger trains go, a distance of 496 kilometres (308 mi). It is the highest mainline railway line in Northern Europe, crossing the Hardangervidda plateau at 1,237 metres (4,058 ft) above sea level. The railway opened from Bergen to Voss in 1883 as the narrow Voss gauge line. In 1909 the route was continued over the mountain to Oslo and the whole route converted to standard gauge and the Voss Line became part of the Bergen Line. The line is single track and was electrified in 1954-64. The Flåm Railway remains as the only branch line, after the closure of the Hardanger Line.

The highest point in the national park is Folarskardnuten which reaches an elevation of 1,933 metres (6,342 ft) above sea level. The landscape of Hallingskarvet was shaped by multiple ice ages. The Bergen Railway runs along the southern boundary of the park. There is no road access to the southern side of the park, so Finse Station, a stop on the railway line, is one of the few ways that people can access this part of the park.
