In instants Krossobanen takes you from just outside Rjukan to Hardangervidda. The cable cars are quite old, steep and fast thus providing a slight fright. However, the cable cars are manned with a calm "driver" who also gives answers to questions you might have to...More

Nice place to visit, good starting point for various hiking trails. With good weather nice views. Unfortunately when we went up it was very cloudy, nevertheless we enjoyed the ride and the "solstien" round walk.

We rode this lift up in the evening to eat dinner and enjoy the views. It is a typical cable car ride up the side of the mountain.

Fun ride in the Blueberry. Great views. Nice and expensive waffle in the top restaurant. Would have walked down if I had good shoes. Nice hike.
