Introducing Narvik

Narvik is pincered by islands to the west and mountains in every other direction, while spectacular fjords stretch north and south. The town is a relative youngster, established in 1902 as an ice-free port for the rich Kiruna iron mines in Swedish Lapland. Recently it has begun to capitalise on the unique sporting and sightseeing activities offered by its majestic surroundings and the spectacular Ofotbanen railway to Sweden.
