Travel Guide
Narvik

Narvik is the third largest town in the county of Nordland, and has been one of northern Norway’s most important harbour towns for a long time. It is also a great place to visit for tourists, and can offer everything from fantastic nature experiences to an exciting and sometimes dramatic history.

Many choose to holiday in Narvik because of the amazing winter sport opportunities, and when you are standing on your skis or snowboard at the top of the well-groomed pistes of Narvikfjellet Mountain, with the sea and the Ofotfjord in front of you, you will soon understand why.

The most daring can try off-piste skiing in a resort that has one of Scandinavia’s tallest fall heights, but there are also some good cross-country trails for those who prefer something calmer. Should you come to Narvik in summer, you can try your hand at mountain or downhill biking.

The nature of northern Norway is wild, and if you visit Polar Park, located an hour’s drive away from Narvik, you will discover that the park’s inhabitants are too. In this zoo, you can get close to some of our most famous animal species, such as the four great predators – wolves, bears, lynx and wolverines – as well as other animals like moose, musk oxen and snow foxes. Polar Park places a lot of importance on teaching guests about the animals, so a visit here can be as informative as it is exciting.

Northern Norway is also well-known for its rich fish life, and during your stay in Narvik, you can book a fishing trip with a boat and guide. It is possible to go on a guided fjord cruise, where in addition to beautiful nature and wild animals, you will also see shipwrecks that serve as a memory of the most dramatic time in the town’s history. Ofotfjord was the scene of many important sea battles at the start of World War II. To learn more about the town’s war history, you can visit to its war museum, Krigsmuseet i Narvik.

Travelling to Narvik from the UK is easiest by plane, arriving at the nearest airport Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes, located approximately an hour’s drive away from the town, via a connection in Oslo. There are regular buses to Narvik from the airport. You can also get a train from Oslo or other towns to Fauske and then take the bus to reach Narvik, which allows you to explore the region even further!
