Local history

Narvik has a unique history with a flourishing of a city and hub in Ofoten at the end of the 1800s. The construction of the Ofotbanen Railway was the starting shot for the modern, urban society that established itself near an ice-free harbor. On the seat of an electric mountain bike, we take you into the story that played out in and around Narvik. We focus in particular on the Ofotbanen Railway and the hostilities that unfolded during World War II, and are based on places featured in the film “The Battle of Narvik”.

The tours take place in suburban surroundings. We start at Narvik Museum in Administrasjonveien 3. We make short stops at interesting places and places the film has scenes from.
