The Narvikregion on foot!
The Narvik region offers large a wide range of hiking opportunities. From simple to more demanding and challenging trips. For longer trips we recommend the Narvik Tourist Association (Narvik and Omegn Turistforening, NOT) that has a great network of marked routes and pleasant cabins. The routes are available on website (https://not.dnt.no/) and the key for the cabins you can collect at the local tourist information. You can go from cabin to cabin 15 days in a row or select a few hiking destinations tailored to your wishes and needs. There are 28 cabins in 14 locations, and they are all without staff. In the cabins you will find firewood, gas, kitchenware and beds. There is no food at the cabins and equipment in them vary. The hiking area extends from Bjørnfjell on the Ofotbanen in the North to Hellemobotn in Tysfjord in the South.
