NICE TO KNOW Regional Airport: Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes (EVE). Located about 75 km from Narvik town centre and just over an hour by car. Local Airport: Narvik Framnes Airport (NVR) is the small local airport in Narvik 2.5 km from the town centre. Population of Narvik: About 18,500 Currency: 1 Norwegian krone (NOK) =100 ore Banks are open from Monday to Friday throughout the year. Check with the tourist office for opening hours. ere is no place in Narvik where you can change currency so it is a good idea to have some Norwegian money when you arrive in the country.

Summer -e light season and the Midnight Sun You can experience the Midnight Sun from the middle of May till the end of July. As long as the sky is not cloudy, you will see the Midnight Sun. e cable car in Narvik is a great way to experience not only a famous view but also to see the Midnight Sun. Winter -e dark season and the Northern Lights e Northern Lights season is usually good from September through to April. Best way to experience the Northern Light is to stay away from built up areas where artificial light is typical. e sky should be clear. Northern Norway is actually one of the best places to experience the night sky in the winter because there is less artificial light. e dark season starts in November and the sun disappears until the beginning of February.

FISHING 24- HOURS A DAY e Ofoten region has so far not been commercialised within fishing tourism but it is certainly developing into an exciting area for fishing. is is a part of Northern Norway where fishing has been a major element of the inhabitants’ way of life for centuries and in some places, still is.

e area is mountainous with numerous lakes, rivers and ample fishing opportunities. Northern Norway’s coastline is sculptured around many ords and the prospects for sea fishing are plentiful either from the shoreline or from a boat. Here is an indication of what you may catch on a day out: Sea fishing: cod, herring, mackerel, catfish, halibut, saith and spiny dogfish. Lakes and rivers: trout, char, salmon and pike. Wherever you choose to go the mountain terrain or lowland areas surrounding Ofoten are

14

magnificent. You are never far from either. It can take 30 minutes to get from a docked boat to a mountaintop. From end of May till mid August, the midnight sun will accompany you on this great experience. For more information, rules and regulations about fishing in Narvik and the Ofoten region, visit:

WALKING INTO HISTORY - THE NAVVY TREK TO ROMBAKSBOTN e old access road brings you from Bjørnell or Katterat station down to Rombaksbotn. In 1997, this area received the annual prize as Norway’s finest outdoor area. Today the access road is re-opened as a historic walk and bike path where you can witness evidence from the Navvy years and WW2. Walking this pathway during the summer season is incredible and for some a very touching experience - following in the footsteps of the Navvies along the road that was vital for the construction of the Ofoten Railway. For more details about the Navvy trek, please contact the tourist office in Narvik.

THE OFOTBANEN RAILWAY Photo: Destinasjon Narvik

e Ofotbanen Railway between Kiruna and Narvik was built to carry iron ore from the mines in and around Kiruna to the shipping port of Narvik. It was officially opened in 1903. In addition to this, passengers and other types of goods are also carried by the railway. e construction of the railway was a demanding task for the navvies and for this reason it emerges as something of a constructional masterpiece. Today, the Ofotbanen Railway is considered one of the most spectacular railways in the world. e journey between Kiruna and Narvik, with its tall mountain formations and incredible landscape is a unique experience.

TYSFJORD Tysord is located in the southern part of the Ofoten region. With its 2000 bilingual inhabitants, the municipality is located in the Lule Sami core area, and consequently a significant part of the inhabitants are of Sami population or origin. Tysord Museum spreads knowledge about human activity from the time when the first people came to Divtasvuodna/Tysord and up until today. A large majority of the borough’s population are Sámi, and it is therefore only natural that the museum should make an effort to reflect the areas multi-cultural aspect. Orca Safari: Every autumn the herring pulls in to the Vestorden, all the way in to Tysord. And with the herring comes the Killer Whales. e massive concentration of herring makes the ord a giant plate of food for the Orcas, hence the chances of spotting the whales are good.

46

You will find rock caves as old as 9000 years, they are considered the oldest findings in Northern Norway, and characterized as the largest and possibly one of the most impressive carvings from the Stone Age. e character of the municipal Tysord is the long, deep ords and the high steep mountains. e contrasts of the beautiful countryside are big, with the deepest cavern and biggest canyon of Northern Europe. With being the narrowest part of Norway, only 6 km from the ord to the Swedish border, we welcome you to Tysord and encourage you to cross the country crosswise.
