Norway’s Flåm Railway is considered one of the most beautiful rides in the world. Built into the mountains between Oslo and Bergen, it climbs almost 2850 feet in an hour, traveling along one of the steepest train routes in the world. You may not make it to Scandinavia anytime soon, but you can still experience Flåm’s beauty through Expedia’s Virtual Flåm project. It lets you explore the railway through either 360° video on your desktop or through a virtual reality headset. You can even adjust the speed of your virtual train (the video is shot from the perspective of the front of the train). Information about local sights passing by pop up on the left side of the screen as you go through the journey.
