Home to both the midnight sun (with constant daylight from April to July) and the northern lights, North Norway is a rugged land of steep mountains, deep fjords and scenic coastline, making it a great place for outdoor adventures like dog sledding, snowmobiling and wildlife safaris. It's also the ancient home of the Sami people, 3,000 of whom live (along with 100,000 reindeer) at Kautokeino, Norway's largest municipality at over 3,700 square miles.

In addition to large areas of groomed trails and pists, you can also enjoy world class off-piste skiing, whereas Narvikfjellet has one of Scandinavia 's largest vertical drops and very good conditions for off-piste skiing. The resort is also suitable for families and beginners, who can take advantage of a separate children's lift and a customized childrens area. The Alpine skiing almost starts "downtown" ca. 200 meters above sea level, and the ski lifts take you up to 1006 m during 10-15 minutes. The spectacular view from the top of Narvikfjellet is unique, as the pists almost ends in the fjord. Narvikfjellet have a cable car that runs parallel to the 3 T- lifts. Both the cable car and the lifts takes you up to The Upper Mountain Lift Station 656 m. The chairlift takes you to the top of the ski area as the lift ends at 1006 m. From there you can walk another 300 meters to Tredjetoppen (third peek), the starting point for our world-class off-piste skiing!
Enjoyed the trip in the cable car to look out over Narvik. Although it was cloudy and a blizzard started when we got to the top, it was still worth the trip to see the stunning view across the harbour.
