Take a day trip into the mountains and beyond into Norway and the beautiful fjord city of Narvik on-board one of our comfortable vehicles. Heading off along the shore of scenic Lake Torneträsk – the sixth largest and second deepest lake in Sweden the tour slowly follows the famous Navvy Trail, giving a chance to see beautiful mountain vistas, frozen waterfalls and stunning Arctic valleys before stopping at the border to enjoy the magnificent views and to take photos.
The tour continues up and over Björnfjell – a stunning Norwegian mountain dotted with small grass roofed cottages, before meandering down the mountain, where small birch trees give way to large evergreens, and dramatic mountains fall steeply down into the Norwegian Fjord. The beach is the next stop where you will have the opportunity to take in the spectacular vistas across the open water flanked by massive mountains on either side. Finally you will arrive in Narvik where you will have the opportunity to ascend to the 16th floor observation deck of the Scandic Hotel where you can have lunch and something to drink or simply sit back and take in the panoramic views across the town and beyond.
This beautiful journey to Narvik includes an entrance ticket to the newly built Peace Museum and Narvik Visitors Centre. This-state-of-the-art facility, completed in June 2016, offers a glimpse of what life looked like in these majestic Fjords during the Nazi occupation of World War II. During your time in Narvik you can also choose to wander through the streets of the city and discover your own adventure, enjoy lunch at one of the many tasty restaurants in the area or visit the local shopping mall and come home with a souvenir from your visit. Don’t miss this beautiful journey to the fjords of Norway!
