About Rallarvegen (the Navvies' Road):

As the name suggests the Rallarvegen road dates back to the time when the road was used by navvies during the construction of the Bergen Railway. Today Rallarvegen is best known as a cycle route of exceptional beauty, offering a multitude of experiences.

In Finse, at an altitude of 1,222 metres, you can pay a visit to Rallarmuseet, the navvies’ museum, where you can discover how navvies lived and the tools and aids they used in the construction of the Bergen Railway. From Finse to the end point in Flåm the distance is about 53 km.
