Activity description

This Artic Train travels from Narvik's ice-blue fjord on a chase of the Northern Lights. This Northern Lights Express carries you away from the pollution of the city!

Onboard the Arctic Train, the guides will greet you and the journey will begin along the Ofoten line. The guides will share stories while you relax on the train during the trip. Sit back and watch the beautiful white scenery outside the windows. 

The first stop on this journey is the Swedish border station of Bjrnfjell. After a short stop, we will then travel to Katterat station. Here, 374 meters above sea level, you will continue the chase while exploring the area and listening to stories about the northern light.

Because we will be high up in the mountains and away from city lights, our chances of seeing the Northern Lights are good if the sky is clear. Experience the incredible natural beauty of the Northern Lights, a dancing sky in front of your eyes a truly unique experience. We will also build a fire and serve pastries while sipping warm beverages.

Bring warm clothes, plus your camera, and join us on this hunt on historical rails!
