Narvik has a unique history with the resurgence of a town in Ofoten at the end of the 19th century. The construction of the railway, Ofotbanen is the origin of the modern urban community that established and developed near a natural harbour. On the seat of an electric mountain bike, we take you into the story that played out in and around Narvik. We are particularly focused on the acts of war that unfolded during World War II.
Narvik received dramatic attention during World War II. Nazi Germany chose to invade the city in the early war years, to control the railway and the shipment of iron ore from the mines in Sweden. The film "The Battle of Narvik" is released during the year. Footage will be made in and around the city, and the scenes will be shown in cinemas during 2021. On the e-bike tours we come into close contact with the scenes shown on the film.
On this trip goes on the road and demanding terrain. We cycle to Tøttadalen, and stop where war-historical events played out. There are wonderful views of the city and the fjord along the entire route. Our guide takes you on an exciting and educational tour of the Ofotbanen, the urban development and not least the ravages of war.
