It’s wild, it’s dramatic – and it’s most certainly a genuine nature experience. If you’re searching for an active holiday,
Narvik is the place for you.
Narvik is an important industrial town in Norway because of its ice-free port. The need for access to an open harbour to export iron from Sweden led to the construction of the Ofotbanen Railway Line, and to the development of the modern town of Narvik. Today, there are several options for getting to Narvik and around.
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.
