It’s wild, it’s dramatic – and it’s most certainly unique. If you are searching for genuine nature experiences or an active holiday, Narvik is definitely waiting for you.
Narvik is an important industrial town in Norway because of the ice free ports. The need for access to an ice-free harbour to export iron from Sweden led to the construction of the Ofotbanen Railway Line, and so to the development of the modern town of Narvik.
During World War II the port of Narvik proved to be strategically valuable for both sides. This dramatic part of the town’s modern history is still important to the region and its inhabitants.
