How much luggage may I bring on-board?
It depends on the train you prefer for a journey. For example, there are no luggage limitations on Flamsbana trains while NSB trains allow a maximum of 3 bags per passenger (maximum weight of the luggage is 30 kg). Keep in mind that the SJ trains have a limited luggage space onboard and they allow bringing no more than 2 bags with you (maximum dimensions are 80x50x35 cm/31x20x13.8 in and maximum allowed weight is 20 kg).
Is there free or paid Wi-Fi on-board?
As a rule, all Norway trains are very well-equipped and boast great onboard amenities, including complimentary Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, Flamsbana trains are the exception to this rule as they don't offer Wi-Fi during the ride.
Is there WC on-board?
Yes, all modern Norway trains provide bathroom facilities onboard.
May I get my bike on-board?
The NSB trains allow traveling with a bike provided that the train you take has a special storage place for bikes (and you will need to pay a bicycle fare). You can bring a bicycle onboard SJ train on condition that it's foldable or you disassemble it and put in a special bicycle bag for the journey (maximum dimensions are 140x85x30 cm/55x33x12 in and maximum allowed weight is 25 kg). The Flamsbana trains have no specific limitations on the matter.
May I travel with pets by train?
The Flamsbana trains allow traveling with dogs as long as they are kept on a leash and wear a muzzle. You can bring two animals onboard of an SJ-train free of charge but don't forget to indicate that you are traveling with pets while booking a ticket. The NSB trains allow taking dogs, cats, caged rodents, caged birds, and small turtles onboard, but for animals with a shoulder height of more than 40 cm (15.7 in) a rail ticket must be purchased.
Is there a buffet on-board?
Most regional trains in Norway have a cafe with a cozy sitting area onboard. There, you can order a delicious hot meal or enjoy an offered selection of sandwiches, snacks, and drinks. The Flmasbana trains don't provide any dining options but the Myrdal train station and Flam both house eateries.
Can you drink on trains in Norway?
Yes, you can but there are several limitations on the matter. First, you can't drink your own alcoholic beverages while onboard. All long-distance trains have a pantry car where you can purchase beer and wine. Second, it's forbidden to consume alcohol anywhere but the dining car during the ride.
