More info: Finse railway station is located in a small mountain village of the same name. The station was opened in June 1908 as part of the Bergen Line. With the coming of the railway, Finse grew and attracted visitors for recreational purposes as well as a few hundred people who settled there. During the 1960s and 1970s the tourist traffic declined, as did the village, and during the 1980s it virtually died when the school and store closed.
The railway provides the only access to the area as there is no public road. Finse Station still operates the oldest and highest post office in Norway, founded in 1904.
