The area

In Telemark lies Tinn Kommune. In the beautifull narrow valley lies a special place and a unique city, Rjukan. On top, at the tip of the entrance to Hardangervidda lies Rjukan climbing park. The experience starts with Krossobanen, North Europe's first cable car. The trip up is amazing and specatular with a view over Rjukan and Gaustatoppen. We couldn't be more proud and happier with the entrance gate to our climbing park. Read more about Krossobanen over at www.krossobanen.no
