Narvik is so much more than just beautiful nature! It is the home of Ofoten railway, the navvies, the famous bear cubs 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. A town center was formed and its unique culture was, and still is, influenced by Swedish navvies, British engineers and sailors from across the world. Located 45 km from the Swedish border you can visit two countries in one day.
