Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The Cable Car is Tromsø’s most popular tourist destination. It 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. 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. Fjellheisen 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.

Not much to add as others have covered this very well. If you are into vistas, this is an activity for you. If I would have had time, I think the hike down would have been nice to do. If you can do only one thing in Tromso, this it.

I was on a guided bus tour to Tromsö. At first we went up with the Fjellheisen (Tromsø Cable Car). Up there we had a fantastic view over the town. Then we took a beer in their cafeteria and continued to admire the view over Tromsö.

Spectacular views from the top it appears to run what ever the weather. There had been a snow fall overnight the 9th June and we even made a snowman to see the whole of Tromso and surrounds and the hills all covered in snow made this so special

We did this as part of a cruise excursion. Lines weren't very long, but maybe they are sometimes. Great view from up top. e were there early June and it snowed just a bit. Probably one of the better things to do in Tromso.

Although you can hike up or down the mountain, the four minute ride in the cable car provided excellent views and was smooth and pleasant. The cable cars run continuously when there is a line, and because the cable cars are very large, the line moved quickly during our visit. Be prepared for a change of weather from the bottom of the mountain to the top - it was very windy and it snowed when we arrived at the summit (in June). The views are excellent from the viewing platform and there are lots of trails to explore when you are done taking photos. There are clean restrooms at the summit as well as a nice cafe/restaurant with great views. Don't miss this activity in Tromso!
