  • I will be arriving at night about 8.30pm on the late train. Can I check in then?
    Hei, We always reccomend to take earlier train and arrive Myrdal before 18:00 pm If you will arrive at Myrdal station from Oslo/Bergen you have to change train to Flåm Railway and take the train 1 stop down to Vatnahalsen station. (the ride takes 3 minutes) From 1 October - 28 april the last train departs from Myrdal at 18:00 pm It's not possible to walk from Myrdal wintertime , so then you have to take earlier train. Please check timetable information at VY From 29 april - 30 September the last train from Myrdal - Vatnahalsen departs at 20:05. It's possible to walk to the hotel in the summertime, it takes 20- 30 minutes. We recommend good shoes and backpack. It's a rocky path and the last hill is quite steep. Best regards Vatnahalsen Høyfjellshotell
