Family walk in underground Nazi-bunkers

  • Kongensgate 39, Narvik
  •  /  km From You
Overview

We invite your family to this eventful walk in narrow and dark Nazi-bunkers underground – once occupied by soldiers and weapons, today a memory of a dramatic history.

On this family walk you will be equipped with flashlights and led into bunkers built and heavily guarded by the Nazis during the war. During a two and a half-kilometre walk in hilly terrain we will visit underground constructions with narrow cannon and machine gun positions, dark ammunition storages, moist trenches, and maze-like tunnel constructions. This guided walk takes place on trails along the Ofoten fjord, where five nations met in the Battle of Narvik in 1940. Our experienced guide will give both kids and adults an understanding of why Norway was occupied during the war and why Narvik, a small town in the Arctic, was given such an important role in the world history.


This walk fits everyone and is particularly suited for families with kids in the ages 5–14. The walk includes guiding, surprises for the kids and a souvenir from the walk. In the narrowest and darkest trenches, secrets are hidden that only the brave may expose. 

Welcome!
