Overview

The Tromsø Cable Car was built in 1961 by Brød­rene Jakob­sens Rederi, a local shipping company that was a major player in Arctic hunting/trapping, fishing and expeditions to the Arc­tic and Antarctic. The gondolas proudly convey this tradition by bearing the shipping company’s symbols: the polar bear and the seal. The Cable Car runs from Solliveien in Tromsdalen up to the mountain ledge Storsteinen. The lower station is located on Tromsø’s mainland, 50 m above sea level, while the upper station, Fjellstua, is situated at an altitude of 421 m above sea level. The trip up takes just four minutes. The Cable Car is Tromsø’s most popular tourist destination. From the large outdoor terrace, you can enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of Tromsø and the virtually endless sight of islands, fjords, mountains and the open sea. If you look in the other direction, you will see the majestic mountain Tromsdalstinden, which towers 1,238 m above sea level. In summer, the panorama deck at the upper station provides excellent opportunities of seeing the Midnight Sun, while in winter it’s an ideal place for hunting the magical Northern Lights. Welcome to the Tromsø Cable Car – proud supplier of views since 1961

This was supposed to be one of the main attractions in Tromsø, but it was just an expensive cable car ride with a view that took a few minutes to see and take photos of. Perhaps there is more to do up there in the...More

Anyone staying in Tromso should make a stop here, great view! However, it is much colder up there, so be sure to take some warm clothes :)

I really enjoyed my trip on the gondola and the staff were kind. I defiantly recommend this to older travellers looking to enjoy the view Tromso has to offer without working to hard. Great place to take pictures and enjoy the sun days.

The gondola up and back is about $20 per person. The views up there are great. Once you're up there, there is a cafe but beware it's pricey!

The view from the top provides a panoramic view of the city of Tromso, when the skies are clear, i.e. not foggy, snowing, etc. Some people bring their skis & others even do paragliding from the top of the mountain.

Fantastic view of Tromso --helps put the whole place in perspective. Probably worthwhile having the correct footwear as in the winter months walking around on the icy surface at the top can be quite challenging if not very dangerous
