Polar Park - Howl Night

Join us and get a unique and fantastic experience after closing time. Imagine it being dark, crunchy snow underfoot, if we’re lucky – the northern lights. As we enter the park we are taught to howl for the wolves and they howl back. How would you like to stay overnight in the Wolf Lodge at Polar Park.

Ofoten Railway

The Ofoten Railway extends for 42 km from Narvik to the Swedish border and winds its way through steep, rugged, mountainous terrain north of the Arctic Circle. The journey is a tourist attraction in itself. The line was once described as the 8th Wonder of the World and was the northernmost, coldest and harshest railway construction project the world had ever seen.
