WWII History and Breathtaking Landscapes.

Hidden away at the head of the Otofjord, Narvik is brimming with naval history and “no-you’re-not dreaming” natural wonder. Since the late 1800’s, Narvik’s ice-free port has been vital to shipping iron ore from neighboring Sweden. In fact, the Ofoten Railway was built specifically to bring it from the mines to the sea. Today, you can travel the railway as it hugs the mountainside, running along the spectacular Rombaksfjord. To see the fjord from a fresh perspective, take a boat tour back down the fjord to town.

One of the first battles of WWII was fought in the waters around Narvik. Recognizing the importance of iron ore for the German war effort, Allied forces fought fiercely to protect the port from invasion. To learn more, visit the new Narvik War Museum for immersive, interactive exhibits.

For the best view of town, and the mountains, fjords, and glaciers that surround it, take a ride over 2,000 feet above sea level on the Narvikfjellet cable car. At the top, dine at a restaurant that offers postcard-perfect views. On a clear day, you’ll even be able to see the Lofoten islands.
