With its wilderness surroundings and dramatic landscape, Narvik is a wonderful port town with a strong connection to nature.

The dark skies here make it an ideal location for Northern Lights hunting and though it is possible to see the green dancing lights from town, Narvik’s cable car offers an even better view. Taking you over 600m high, you’ll be away from artificial light and closer to the dark polar skies. If conditions are favourable, you’re likely to be in for a truly dazzling display.

Deep history and natural wonders

Narvik is a tale of two towns. On one side, you have the majestic mountains, dramatic fjords and stunning island views - making it a brilliant place to get back to nature. However, Narvik is also an important industrial town due to its ice-free port and has a rich history, particularly from the WW2 era. At the Narvik War Museum, you can discover the large role the town played during the war with brilliant and insightful exhibitions.

The town also still holds a very strong connection to nature. It is in the process of being certified as a ‘Sustainable Destination’ as it is working to reduce the negative impacts of tourism. Narvik is dedicated to providing visitors with a wonderful experience while preserving the local nature, culture and environment.

Narvik is also renowned for its ski resort, offering some of the best alpine skiing in Norway - it even features one of Scandinavia’s largest drop heights.
