The unique cable car experience, opened in May, begins in Loen, a charming village in the Nordfjord region, about 120 miles northeast of Bergen and 200 miles northwest of Oslo. Named the world’s steepest aerial ropeway, the Skylift will carry visitors more than 3,300 feet up to Mount Hoven in about five minutes, providing panoramic views of the surrounding scenic fjords, mountains, Loelva River and Jostedalsbreen National Park.

The lift will operate year-round, offering unique perspectives each season, and is expected to transport more than 40,000 visitors in its first year of operation. It also provides easy access to Mount Hoven’s marked hiking trails, climbing routes and winter sports terrains in addition to fine-dining spot Hoven Restaurant, located at the summit.

The Skylift is located next to the Hotel Alexandra in Loen and runs continuously throughout the day. Each cabin holds 40-45 people, and there is no minimum age limit to ride the lift. A ticket costs about $57, but is well worth it for the breathtaking views.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
