Cruise Northern Norway & Svalbard

10 Apr New cable car for Narvikfjellet

Cruise passengers sailing into Narvik, Norway will soon be able to take a trip up Narvikfjellet mountain on a new cable car, which was built by Swiss company Bartholet. The new gondola system, which opens in February 2019, will follow a different path to Narvikfjellet’s existing cable car.

To be built between March and November 2018, the new gondola system will follow a different path to Narvikfjellet’s existing cable car so construction work does not interfere with operations in 2018. It will become operational in February 2019.

The new system will have 23 cars, each with capacity for 10 people, and will take 4.5 minutes to transport passenger from the bottom to the top, and vice versa. This will enable 1,600 people to use the system every hour.
