Overview

Narvik is located in Northern-Norway, the "land of the midnight sun", and is renowned for having the largest drop in Scandinavia, as well as the best offpiste conditions. The starting point for everyone who comes to Narvik to ski is Fagernesfjellet. The skiing area starts near the village at 200m, and the ski lifts take you up to 1000m in 10-15 minutes. The spectacular view from the top of the slopes is unique, since the runs go almost all the way down to the fjord. A gondola going paralell to the ski lifts takes you directly to the mountain restaurant at 600m. If you want to experience the northern lights (Aurora Borealis), the season for that is from November to March. Due to the dark period in December and January, the period from March to June is considered high season for skiing in Narvik.
