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

If you visit Tromso you should definitly visit this place. You need a bit of luck with the weather...but without clouds you have a wonderful view over the whole island!

Easily reachable by bus, car or even walking from the city center. The wait time was not too long, even on a busy day. The views on the last days of polar night were absolutely stunning and it's worth it to climb a bit higher....More

An absolute must if in Tromso, the cable car provides great views, reasonably priced and friendly staff. Unfortunately no view of the northern lights but would be a epic picture of a city backdrop with a strong display of the aurora borealis. The only downside...More

I call it the “No Fuss Cable Car” as it’s easy to get there by local transport ( bus # 26). However you must buy the transport card. There are two sets of cable cars . One goes up and other down every 30 minutes...More

Nice walk through the snow to get there. Cable car ride short but sweet (about 1 minute each way). Excellent views from the top. Cafe a bit chaotic as they operate a serve yourself drinks service with equipment which works at snails pace - so...More
