Join Film Rjukan and our ‘Fixers’ in exploring Film Location Rjukan, seeing exclusive and little-seen locations:


  • Cold War bomb rooms, tunnels and mysterious abandoned caverns deep in the mountainsides


  • Magnificent power stations that were the largest in the world a century ago

  • Cavernous industrial halls with classic architecture

  • The secret ‘Kings Elevator’ with a capacity of only three that will take you directly to the top of Gaustatoppen.


For centuries, the only way into Tinn Municipality and Rjukan was to brave travels over the high mountain plateau of Hardangervidda, the unique terrain where such films as ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and others gain their special visual personality, or alternatively using the long and narrow Lake Tinn to arrive from the south.


The Rjukan Region was an enclave, nearly impenetrable for 10,000 years – but now it is open, to you.
