Narvikfjellet Ski Resort Norway

Narvik is one of the gateways to the Arctic in Norway & Narvikfjellet ski resort is in a prime position overlooking the coast above town. Narvik is linked by train to the Swedish ski areas of Riksgransen, Bjorkliden & Abisko, but with Narvikfjellet’s lifts extending right from downtown & ski trails seemingly ending in the city centre is worthy of a few days’ exploration in its own right. Also of interest is Narvik’s proximity to the ski-touring delights of the Lofoten Islands.

Skiing & Snowboarding, Lifts & Terrain

Whilst not a large ski area, the splendid location of Narvikfjellet is coupled with a modern access gondola, some fun piste trails & a skiable vertical of over 800m. Only 20km of piste trails are on the mountain, but the real reason to visit is for the off-piste offerings. World class, wild freeride terrain can be accessed directly from the top of the lifts. More expansive options are a short walk further up the mountain from the summit of Tredjetoppen (1,272 m). A new gondola is planned for better access from town in coming seasons.

Narvikfjellet has one the world's best looking ski trail maps, and it should encourage anyone to go for a visit. See the Narvikfjellet ski trail map.

Where is Narvik Norway?

The Narvikfjellet ski resort is 220km north of the Arctic Circle, perched above the town of Narvik on the Ofotfjorden – a typically deep, long Norwegian fjord where the water goes down to 500m deep & the surrounding mountains go straight up to over 1700m elevation. Narvik can be reached overland from Oslo, but unless one is keen on a road trip of several days, the tyranny of distance & time-consuming ferry crossings force most travellers to arrive by air.

Flights to the Narvik arrive at the Harstad-Narvik airport at Evenes (EVE), 57km to the west of town. All flights are via Oslo (OSL) & flight times are around 2hr. Search & book flights to Evenes airport.

Due to the difficult nature of public transport to Narvik, for reasons of value & efficiency, we recommend looking at a private transfer from the airport, particularly if in a group of 3 or more people. Search & book all airport transfers to Narvik.

To get out & about from Narvik, the train is a wonderful way to link up the Swedish Lapland ski resorts to the east. The train from Kiruna in Sweden is also an alternative mode of transport to Narvik & provides an option for a fabulous ski safari circuit. There are two trains a day completing the 3.5hr journey, one in the morning & one in the afternoon in both directions. Search & book train tickets between Kiruna & Narvik.

For the Lofoten Islands, if not travelling as part of a tour, cars can be rented at Evenes airport or Narvik. Search & book car rentals from Evenes airport or Narvik.

Narvikfjellet Accommodation

The major city of Narvik at the foot of Narvikfjellet provides all the accommodation for the ski area.

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) at Narvik

Another of Narvik’s geographical benefits are shared with much of the Arctic - its proximity to the stunning phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis (otherwise known as the Northern Lights).

The Northern Lights can be viewed from September to April. You need a clear night with no light (artificial or moon!) & the right solar activity.

Nearby Ski Resorts

For skiing of the lift assisted kind,  away from Narvik, the railway into Sweden links Narvik with the Swedish Lapland trio of Riksgransen, Bjorkliden & Abisko. To the west, the Lofoten Islands provides some of the world's best coastal ski touring & freeride powder descents.
