The perfect day trip

Hike across Norway

The perfect day trip for everyone interested in hiking, history and beautiful Arctic scenery.

The trip combines a ride on the Ofoten Railway, Norway’s northernmost railway, hiking on the historical Navvies’ Road, and a beautiful boat ride through the Rombaken fjord back to Narvik.

If your aim is hiking in the northern mountains, then the train journey is the perfect way to start the family trip. The end of the train journey in different stations along the track- Katterat, Bjørnfjell and Riksgränsen is only the start to many different hiking opportunities.

Tie your walking shoes and get out on an adventurous journey along historic tracks and trails!

The trip starts with a train ride, continues by foot from Katterat Station or from Bjørnfjell Station on the Navvies Road, and ends with a scenic boat ride through the Rombak fjord back to Narvik.

A magical 43 kilometres long train trip from the Northern Atlantic, into the heart of Ofotfjord, and through the huge mountains on the Swedish Lapland borders.

Hike on the Navvy road

You can hike up to several tops, walk along mountain lakes or even hike through the historical trails in the footsteps of the navvies down to the legendary Rombakksbotn by the fjord. If you start your trip at Riksgränsen, then you can tick off that you have crossed Norway by feet!
