After a hearty breakfast it is time to explore Narvik’s surroundings and learn about its interesting history. A return-trip with The Arctic Train is included. In the course of an hour, the train and takes you to Bjørnfjell on the border to Sweden. You will travel through a unique and changing landscape, from fjord views to alpine mountain terrain. Interesting historical events, such as the difficult construction of the Ofot railway line and battles during World War 2, form a dramatic backdrop.
The rest of the day is at your own disposal. We recommend a visit to Narvik War Museum to learn more about wars and the Battle of Narvik in 1940. Another option, suitable for all ages, is a visit to Polar Park approx. 1 hour drive north.
