Exceptionally clear skies and northerly latitude - within the Arctic Circle - Narvik ski holidays offer a high chance of seeing the spectacular Northern Lights. If you’re not fortunate enough to catch them, the easy access to backcountry skiing, the beautiful nature, scenery and fascinating history are always there to admire and they won’t fail to take your breath away.

Narvikfjellet is the mountain overlooking the town and offers staggering views of the Ofotfjord. Skiing from its peak with views of the surrounding mountains and fjords is simply mesmerising. You can choose from a number of fun reds and blues, plus the easy access to ample backcountry skiing from the lift makes this an area really worth exploring. It’s an experience that you’ll never forget.

The nearby Polar Park - the world’s northernmost animal park - is well worth a visit too and is home to bears, lynx, deer, moose, muskox, wolverines, reindeer and two wolf packs. It’s even possible to join the guides inside the enclosure to meet the wolves.

Thanks to the Gulf Stream, the Arctic town of Narvik has a mild climate. The fjord never freezes over in the winter and, for this very reason, made it a strategic port that played a valuable role in World War II for the transportation of iron ore from nearby Sweden. (You can learn more about the history of Narvik at the impressive war museum in the heart of the town, well worth a visit).

The Ofotbanen railway line connects the port of Narvik to the rich iron ore deposits in neighbouring Kiruna, Sweden. Its spectacular journey - one of the greatest rail journeys in the world - conveniently connects directly with the Swedish ski resorts of both Björkliden and Riksgränsen too. We highly recommend combining these resorts as a multi-resort itinerary, allowing you to explore the best skiing and activities in the region.

"Rich in beauty, nature and history - and a great place to spot the northern lights - Narvik is a once-in-a-lifetime destination you must visit."
