Tromsø City and Tromsdalen (25 minute walk across the bridge) are very accessible by foot. Visiting in Winter?  Wear shoes with extra grip - the pathways can be layered with frozen snow & very slippery!

1. FJELLHEISEN CABLE CAR

For breathtaking views of Tromsø from above, take a ride up to Tromsdalens viewpoint via the Fjellheisen Cable Car. Return trip price is 210 NOK per adult (approx. £19). Online pre-booking is available, but not necessary. In the Summer months, you can walk up to the viewpoint for free. Step onto the cantilevered viewing deck for unspoiled views of Tromsø, its vast seas and snow-capped mountains beyond.  There is also a good sized, licensed and (most importantly) warm café to retreat to if the cold wind gets too much. Grab some lunch, wine or a hot beverage. The panoramic windows still offer great views. 

Tip: Be sure to to visit on a clear day for undisturbed views. If a snowy or cloudy day, visibility will be significantly reduced.

Tip: Try to arrive 30 minutes before sunset. Get three views for the price of one: Clear daytime, dreamy hues of Dusk and Tromsø illuminating at night!
