War History Bike Tour
Do you want an exciting and memorable experience in Narvik this summer?
Narvik Museum invites you on an electric bike ride through the city’s history; The Ofotbanen Railway, the war years and the city’s industry and development.
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.
The hikes go on trails and roads close to history and with a good overview of Narvik.
