Amidst the snow we first viewed the town before travelling with a group to the ski lift.
The surface approaching the entrance was very slippery and one had to watch cars manoeuvring in the car park.
Locals must have been very annoyed for as a group we jumped the queue and were given priority.
Waiting for the lift one could look up and see many enjoying skiing and skate boarding and then into the pod. Six of us, comfortable, but oh the windows smeared by scratches hindered what was truly a beautiful opportunity to view the town and fjord. The ride took about eight minutes with a pause half way while other pods were unloaded and loaded.
At the top there was a joyous view of the white surrounds. On the many slopes people were skiing and walking in the very crisp bright air. From the cafe, where we enjoyed coffee and a great cake, the windows allowed access to the scenic delight.
It was somewhat crowded and with skiers and their equipment a bit of an obstacle course in places. However, the views were captivating and, as the sun began to set the mountain was a white sea of colour!
The irritation of the scratched windows again prevailed on the return journey. But it was worth it.

This gondola ride takes you up 656 metres above sea level! When we were at the bottom, which seamed fairly calm, we were warned that if it was too windy at the top we would have to walk back down! After a gentle ride up when we got to the top it seemed very windy, so we had a fairly quick stay as we did not fancy walking down. Having said that there were spectacular views, as you would expect. There is a cafe at the top and viewing platforms. It is well worth a visit, as long as it is not too windy! One other point, we walked up a long and winding road up to the bottom station and when we got there we found out that it is on a local bus route. Use that and save your time and legs!

Cable cars are 6-seaters and connected by 3 together. Ride takes about 10 mins for 500 ms up. Nice restaurant on the top

This is the place to see the Midnight Sun, the lift is open until 1am during the time of perpetual daylight, even the cafe stays open. The view are spectacular! Is also a great place to see the Northern Lights at the right time of year.
