This is a nice Trail between Vatnahalsen and Finse 1222. It's part of the norwegian Rallarvegen. The word Rallar is a name that the railway workforce had and the word vegen is the norwegian word for road in its singular form. The road was used to build and maintain the railroad going from Oslo to Bergen. Today it's a recreational area. Its possible to use a bicycle here between July and early October depending on the snow conditions. Some also travel in this areas during the winter (ski or fatbikes).

Be aware of the weather conditions before you go for this trip as it can be rough. This is the middle section of Rallarvegen and the most open one. There are little or no shelter from the weather here.

 You can rent a bicycle at the Finse train station for a one-way trip down to Flam. Once in Flam, just drop it off at the Flam train station.
