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.
