Narvik Museum invites you on an electric bike ride through the town’s history; Ofotbanen, the war and the city’s industry and development
Narvik has a unique history of a growing town and hub in Ofoten at the end of the 19th century. The construction of the Ofotbanen railway was the starting point 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 history that played out in and around Narvik. We focus especially on the Ofotbanen railway and the acts of war that unfolded during World War II, and are based on places that are part of the film «The Battle of Narvik».
The tours take place in an urban setting. We start at Narvik Museum in Administrasjonsveien 3. We make short stops at interesting places and places the film has scenes from. The tours are on trails and roads close to history and with a good overview of Narvik.
This is what you get:
• An amazing day together with other peoples.
• TREK electrical bicycle of high-quality with helmet.
