    About a 30 minute drive south of Narvik is the Skjomenfjord (pronounced SCHU-man-fyord). Drive around the back roads and enjoy the scenery. There are a number of places to pull over and park. In nice weather, this is a great area to have a picnic. Unfortunately, the weather definitely wasn't nice. Our friend Jim also says the area is far more scenic when the weather is clear. Maybe so, but the views were just fine, even with the clouds.

    To get to Skjomenfjord, head south on E-6 in the direction of Bodø. Just before you are about to cross a long bridge, take the left turn down a narrow road. Continue down the road until you find a suitable place to park.

    "Narvik Beach"

    Arctic Beach Houses

    About 30 minutes north of Narvik by car, on the road to Tromsø, there is a sandy area with a number of small, square beach houses. They looked quite similar to the beach houses we saw in Ærø, Denmark. Here, you can wander along the sand, take in the views... and even swim if you like. It was a tad chilly when we were there, so we decided to stay on dry land.

    Sometimes, something do not change, especially in Norway ;-) This is an old, probably historical wooden house here, but I am not sure what it used for.

    Narvik is in a fjord and there are many fjords in the area. When you are in Narvik one of the places you can visit is the beautiful Skjomen just outside of town. PHOTO: SKJOMEN
