Ofoten Railway from Kiruna an Gallivare to Narvik

Once hailed as the most northern and the coldest railway globally and today, the world's most northerly electrified rail line, the Ofoten Railway takes natural beauty to the extreme. Narvik, situated ideally on Norway's northwestern coast, is the starting point for this journey. From there, the train weaves through uninhabited stretches to Kiruna, set across the border in the Swedish Lapland. Imposing mountain ranges and dramatic fjords lead the course between destinations, and the uninhabited lands leave nothing to be desired. Travelers gaze upon vast meadows and mountain plateaus. Sparkling waters adjoin the harsh terrain, and sometimes, herds of reindeer can be spotted grazing in the distance. An unfiltered look at the Arctic Circle's unique landscapes lies ahead with each journey on this endlessly impressive rail line.

Passengers are seated in heated carriages for the trip's duration, with large picture windows offering unrestricted views over the passing vistas. Some windows on the train open, which is a significant perk for those travelers hoping to photograph the Nordic landscape in all its grandeur. There is a total of 270 seats per departure, with two seats on either side of the aisle. Some of the chairs are even arranged in bays of four with a table in the middle to facilitate easy conversation between travelers. Light snacks and drinks are available for purchase aboard the Ofoten Railway, and helpful guides offer stories and anecdotes throughout the journey. Ten or eleven trains make the journey daily throughout the year.
