800 metres from the town centre is Narvik´s modern cable car, refurbished in 1995. It takes only 7 minutes to climb 670 metres up to the Fjellheisen Restaurant on Fagernesfjellet mountain.
From the top, there are plenty of good trails and you´re most likely to see hanggliders and paragliders floating down the mountainsides.
Narvik Golfclub is a golf course with 18 holes and a variation of difficulties. The course lies close to the river Skjoma at Elvegard. Watch up on hole 10. The club role is Salmon in One. That means you had to buy salmon dinner with champagne to everybody on the court.
On Fagernesfjellet, 5 ski lifts take you up to heights of 1003 metres above sea level. From the top, you can follow precipitous slopes almost down to the water´s edge. Over recent years, Narvik has become increasingly popular with snowboarders from all over the world. You´ll also see a growing number of Telemark skiers on the slopes.
The skiing season is a long one in Narvik. It starts in October/November with floodlit runs during the dark winter months, and lasts until May. Just over the border into Sweden, the ski season lasts even longer until Midsummer Day.
