  • We had no thoughts about going up, heldigvi, for the view was from verande due to close the shutter. But the trip up was nice, and the service in which mannskaet served hot vaflar to trøyst for dei that came. Fortunately, we had gotten with the view and the oppstigninga before.

  • A bit expensive. I would recommend hiking.
  • "Cheat" your way up to one of Norways best sights.
  • Noisy, slow and expensive - 250.- Norwegian Kroner one way
  • The ride with the railways and the railway (only one that runs on level ground and then that which moves upwards) is great and really fun. The view from the top is fantastic, so it is worthwhile in any case. I think it's bit of a shame, above and below to do that much at the train station. Above is a small Café or restaurant, because you could not purely with dog. There is a possibility to leave the dog somewhere but not really. So rather awkward for me as unaccompanied. Neither top on the Summit still down there is a souvenir shop (a few very few souvenirs are available in the ticket sales, but this is largely confined to T-Shirts) – like very bad, still bought a few gifts for friends.
