Do you have a few days to spend in Tromsø before or after your stay at Lyngen North?

While many of the outdoor activity providers close during the summer months, you can always count on the Tromsø Cable Car serving you great views throughout the whole year.

Since it finished in 1961, the Tromsø Cable Car has been the city’s most popular tourist attraction. The cable car will bring you on a 4-minute journey to the top of the 421m tall Storsteinen mountain.

Bus Nr. 26 from the city center will stop outside the entrance of the facilities. A one-way ticket will cost around 150,- while a return ticket costs around 210,- nok.

Sherpa Steps

You also have the option of walking the 1300 step long “Sherpa Steps” to the top of the mountain. The Sherpa Steps got the name from its creators who came all the way from Nepal to construct the stairway in 2017.

Tickets can be bought onsite by cash or credit card.
