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

Great view of Tromso and surrounding islands and fjords. Amazing place for hiking. If you stay until dusk you will see one of the most beautiful sunsets.

I walked across the bridge, about 20 minutes, and rode the cable car up to the top of the mountain. The views were spectacular even though a bit windy. I can't remember the cost of the cable car ride but it is the only way...More

This is the place you simply cannot miss when in Tromsø. The views are amazing. Just be cautious. The mountaintop is icy and slippery.

The Fjellheisen Tromso was a nice thing to do while we were in Tromso. It might seem a bit pricy but it was definitely well worth it. Remember spikes on your shoes if you go there. It can be insane slippery with all that ice...More
