Sustainable
destination

Approved and labeled

In 2022, the Narvik region was approved and labeled as a Sustainable destination. Our focus lies within preserving our nature, our culture and our environment, strengthening our social values and our economic viability. 

For us, it is important that while devoloping the tourism industry, we prioritize low impact on the environment and culture while ensuring a positive impact and development for the local population, tourism companies and visitors. Being labeled as a Sustainable destination does not mean that we are one hundred percent sustainable, but we are continously and systematically working on constant improvement.
