      Hello,

      we are two Italian tourists travelling to Svolvaer on Thursday the 17th in order to get our rented car at Europcar for that day.
      Unfortunately we saw, just few hours ago, on the 17th the bus lines to Svolvaer are not working on those days.
      We'll arrive at Evenes at 10:35 with the flight from Oslo, we kindly ask you how we can reach Svolvaer.

      Thank you very much for your answer.

      Hello, it seems impossible to travel from Svolvaer to Abisko in one day with public transport,
      I can't find any connection. Trains and busses arrive too late in Narvik to have the right connection.
      Any tips? hitchhiking? Did I miss something? To be precise: it's about the 5th of march 2014.

      Bus pass in Tromso Norway

      by ntibbe Online Now Jul 18, 2013 at 8:13 PM

      Can you buy a Tromso city 3 day pass in Narvik or do you have to get the passes in Tromso? I won't be getting into Tromso during operating hours so I was hoping I could buy one in Narvik before catching the 100 but to Tromso. If I can't buy a pass in Narvik do you know of a place that will sell bus passes on weekends? Single rides are such a rip off.

      Hi I was planning to catch the Hurtiguten from Bodo to Harstad in May 2013, arriving in Harstad at 06.45. I then planned to travel by bus to Narvik, via the airport, to catch the Stockholm train. I have just found out that the train has been rescheduled from the afternoon to 11.38 in the morning. The only buses I can find from Harstad miss this train by about 15 mins. Is there any other way of getting from Harstad to Narvik?

      Is it possible to travel by boat down coast of Norway commencing near Narvik (only because we are currently in Lulea and can easily get to Narvik via train)for a few days? Would love to see fiiords but haven't got a lot of time. Or would we be better accessing the coast further south and catching a boat there? We have eurail passes for train travel.

      Hello,

      We will stay in Abisko from 20 to 23 March and would like to visit Narvik, too. I have some questions concerning the transportation:
      1. We would like to go by train from Abisko to Narvik. Does the Ofoten Railway operate in this periode of the year? If not, the "official", SJ trains run also in a beautiful scenery?
      2. How can we get to the Lofoten Islands? By bus or by boat? Where can I find timetables?
      3. I heard about mountain lift in Narvik. Is it operating now?

      Thanks so much for your answers.

    • Bus train connections Lofotens to Narvik

      by debbie08 Online Now Feb 4, 2009 at 9:22 PM

      Hi, We will be catching the bus from the Lofotens (Svolvaer) to Narvik (I believe its called LOFAST). The bus arrives into Narvik at 2.10pm. We need to connect with the overnight train to Stockholm that leaves at 2.30pm. If we don't make the connection we need to wait until the next day. Does anyone know whether the train waits for the bus by any chance or is the bus always on time? Also does the bus drop you off at the station or will we need to walk some distance to make the connection? I have been looking for other options such as the express boat but believe this has now been stopped since the express bus commenced? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    • sculpture / war memorial

      by pauliebird Online Now Aug 19, 2008 at 4:43 AM

      I was in Narvik LONG ago - the 1960s - and recall being VERY impressed by a large sculpture. It was on the waterfront. Its title in Norwegian was roughly 'rebirth'. It showed a woman, seated, with a small girl on one knee, and a small boy on the other. There was no man present. It was I believe the war memorial commemorating the virtual destruction of the town by the opposing forces from Germany and Britain in 1940. And then its post war reconstruction. It was very touching and quite different from the military-style war memorials elsewhere.

      But I can now find no reference to it. And no photo. Was it demolished? Is my memory incorrect, was it in Tromso maybe? Or am I even more wrong? Am currently making a study of war memorials and this came to the top of my memory.

I'm hoping we'll get a chance to meet up for a weekend soon but I'm having a hard time trying to work out where BARDEFOSS is in Norway in comparision to everything else and whether its worth us meeting up in Bardefoss or if its better for us to stay in another town? Can someone help? Would you recommend Bardefoss? Or is there another town nearby I could fly to (from London) and one that would be easy for him to travel too? He doesn't know the place at all so can't advise. All I know is that its up north somewhere and too far away from Oslo so we can't go there.

      Hello everyone!
      It is a somber occasion for my family, as our beloved father departed this world very recently. Having been in the Polish merchant marine in his youth, his wish was to have his ashes scattered at sea, in Norway's fjords - specifically around Narvik. My siblings and I are trying to plan a trip for this purpose, but could use some advice from locals and others who have visited as to the best times of year to go, and anything important that we may need to keep in mind!

      Please share any helpful tips you may have.

      4 days in Narvik

      by Jasonconga Online Now Mar 14, 2005 at 12:51 AM

      hey all,

      I've got a couple of questions. As I sit at my desk and look at the map of Europe next to me, I'm so excited to get to a place like Narvik, Norway. So much so that I scheduled 4 days of my 15 day Norwegian holiday in the area, including my 31st birthday! I'll be alone but staying with someone in Narvik from hospitalityclub website. I'm trying to figure out the best way to spend my time there so it's a mixture of relaxing, interesting, awe-inspiring and with a righteous beer or two thrown in. Thinking something like this:

      May 23 arrival - hang out in Narvike
      May 24 birthday! take the Oftobanen to Riksgrensen for the afternoon; where would be a good place to celebrate my birthday with one or two people or possibly even alone. Is there a bar or cafe in Narvik that would think, hey cool, a guy from California having his birthday in our small neck of the woods, let's invite him to a beer!
      May 25 thought of hitchhiking down E6 to Bognes and Tranoey, and then taking the ferry across to Loedingen and hitching back to Narvik
      May 26 hang in Narvik

      Please, any ideas or suggestions sound great. It's 9:49am on a Monday morning, I have to teach 3 English classes in the afternoon and I'm so excited about this trip just 2.5 months away, not to mention the fact that:

      I can speak some Norwegian, been learning for 5 months, first time I've ever learned a language before going to somewhere, and I'm writing a short book in Norwegian (50 pages) that I hope to trade for beers/food and even sell to some people who are interested. I'm sure I'll end up giving half of them away (I'm making 100 copies of the book, costing me about 3200kr!) but give me some advice, vaer saa snil!
