From skiing, hiking and beautiful light shows to the world’s northernmost zoo. Welcome to Narvik, the perfect place for an active holiday north of the Arctic circle.

The city of Narvik is located in Northern Norway, and it is surrounded by majestic nature. Tall mountains soar above the blue Ofotfjord, and they are perfect for hiking and skiing. In winter the northern lights dance across the night sky, while the midnight sun ensures long, bright summer nights.

From Narvik, you can jump on one of the world’s most beautiful train journeys along the Ofoten Line, built by the navvies in the late 1800s. On the trip, you can see marks from the Battle of Narvik, which took place during the Second World War. You can learn more about that at the Narvik War Museum.

Polar Park, the world’s northernmost zoo, is also located in Narvik. Observe animals like wolf, lynx and bear, as well as reindeer, moose, and arctic fox.

Narvik is also in the process of becoming a certified Sustainable destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism.
