    The World longest cable car for human transports are located in Norsjö. The cable car was built for ore transporting over 96km but now it is a tourist attraction between Örträsk and Mensträsk.
    Its very recommend to book a ticket by phone because there are only few places in the cable cars.
    A movie about the cable car is being shown before the ride starts. In German at 12:00 and in English at 12:30.

    The cable car trip starts at 13:00 and need about 1.45h. Afterwards you can have a rest in the restaurant while your waiting for the free coach which will bring you back to Örträsk.
    We were back in Örträsk at 16:15.
    You can book the cable car from Örträsk to Mensträsk or from Mensträsk to Örträsk.

    On the world's longest rope way you'll be able to enjoy many things, most of them from above nature! The over 13 km long rope way between Örträsk and Mensträsk in Norsjö municipality will take you over woodland, marshes, lakes, and the world of the animals in a Västerbotten in miniature. You will even be able to take a look at southern Lapland. Each cabin is able to carry 4 people, and at a speed of 10 km/hour it will take you 1,5 hours to ride the 13.163 m (3.000 m of which above lakes and streams). The ropeway (section IV) is a part of the 96 km long ropeway between Kristineberg and Boliden. Between 1943 and 1987 this ropeway - also the longest one in the world - moved 12 million tons of ore concentrates. In addition to all the copper, lead, zinc, sulphur, and silver, the ropeway buckets have also transported tons of gold throughout the years. The ropeway is one of the figurative golden nuggets in the mining region Gold of Europe - a tourist attraction and a part of our industrial history as well.
