Ofoten Railroad

The Ofoten Railroad lies on a headland at the foot of the Fagernesfjellet, between the Beisfjord and Rornbaksfjord, and runs between the iron-ore mines at Kiruna in Swedish Lapland and the port town of Narvik on the Norwegian coast. The modern town of Narvik was developed as a port for the export of the iron-ore, and the Ofoten Railroad, was built at the turn of the century as the link between the mines and the port.

At the time of construction, the Ofoten Railroad was both the coldest and northern-most railroad project in the world. The 26-mile (42km) line was painstakingly carved out the mountains - an incredible engineering project that was largely undertaken by hand. The result is a breathtaking route which takes passengers past deep fjords, through the wild, rugged mountains and the barren mountain plateaus north of the Arctic Circle.

The Ofoten Railroad Museum is dedicated to the local history of Narvik and the Ofoten Railroad, and is located close to the center of Narvik.
