About

The Krossobane Cable Car was the first cable car to be built in northern Europe. It was built in 1928 and it was a gift from Norsk Hydro to the townspeople so that they could get up high enough to see the sun during the winter.

The lower station has a large car park, from which the two cable cars, "Tyttebær" (cranberry) and "Blåbær" (blueberry) carry passengers up to an altitude of 886 metres.

The view over Rjukan from the upper station is fantastic, with the mountains rolling away to the south and west and Vemork nestling in the valley where the dramatic heavy water sabotage operations took place during the WWII.

Visits to the operations room can be arranged on request.
