  • Fantastic, first you go on a train 850 meters into the mountain, the it's a cable car 40 degrees angle 1050 meters up to the top of the mountain, where you go 100 meters up to a cafe. It's fantastic you have to try this, ticket up and down is 350,- Norwegian kroner. But it is worth every krone.
  • Super fun trip! Wish there was more historical information on both sides.
  • Amazing train inside the mountain to go up or down. Really cool atmosphere there!
  • You know? Very simple and effective! Maybe a little expensive, but we are in Norway! 😄😉😜😎
  • Interresting acces to the gausta summit
