Narvik

Welcome to Narvik - A peninsula surrounded by fjords and mountains. Narvik is so much more than just beautiful nature!
It is the home of Ofoten railway, the navvies, the famous bears Salt & Pepper and its unique war history.
It was the first industrial town in Northern Norway and was given town status in 1902 as the construction of the Ofoten Railway was completed.
