Norway: New Hoven cable car
rom fjord to mountain in 5 minutes
Hoven Loen opens on the 20th of May 2017 - a spectacular new attraction and adventure arena, at the inner part of the Nordfjord, in the heart of Fjord Norway. A Cable Car will lift you from the fjord to 1011 m. Here you can enjoy the views of the fjord landscape - from the restaurant table, or while hiking in the mountains.
This Aerial Ropeway (cable car), will bring you from the fjord to the top of Mt. Hoven (1011 m) in only 5 minutes, and is one of the steepest cable cars in the world.
An Aerial Ropeway is based on vector equation with two big passenger cabins, where one goes up while the other goes down. There is room for 45 passengers in each cabin. The incline from the fjord to Mt. Hoven is too steep for an ordinary gondola.
The provider is Doppelmayr Garaventa, the market leader in ropeway engineering.
