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

We visited on a fairly dull day but the views from the top are very good. You can see the whole of Tromso island from there, plus of course the bridge, the Arctic Cathedral and shipping. The cable car takes 28 passengers so if a...More

We are taking a Hurtigruten cruise and the cable car/hike is an excursion offered. I can't do the hike portion and don't want to pay the big excursion price. Is there a bus or way to get to the cable car from pier aside from walking?

How long would it take to walk up without using the cable car and how doable for good mountain walkers, please? Also, is the cable car within walking distance from the Arctic Cathedral, please? By that I mean up to half an hours walk.

The cabin is in a walking distance from the Artic Cathedral. I will not recommend to walk to top of the mountain cable. You can have a nice walk in the mountains from the top. And it is also a nice trip to walk from the top... More
