"NARVIK - DAY 13" Norway Things to Do Tip by novsco61

Norway Things to Do: 770 reviews and 1,348 photos


Narvik is in the far northern part of Norway and was the site of a major WW2 naval battle.
Narvik harbour, despite being so far north, is free of ice all year round thanks to the Gulf Stream.
800 metres from the town centre is Narvik's modern cable car, refurbished in 1995. It takes only 7 minutes to climb 670 metres up to the Fjell restaurant on Fagernesfjellet mountain.

The city itself didn't left big impression on me- too much industry.
