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.

    From our experience in N Norway the transport connections work well.

    Not done the journey you´re doing, but as they´re selling the bus as connecting with the train they must be pretty confident of their timings.

    The timetable says that the bus goes to the railway station.
