Arctic Train offers an audio guide on Ofotbanen

- There has been a great demand for guiding on our section along the Ofot Railway - which is one of Europe's most beautiful train journeys. With the Voice Of Norway audio guide, all tourists now have access to the stories along the route, both rally stories, war stories and about hiking opportunities in the area. The trip will be richer in content and it will provide opportunities for more experiences in the area, says Kjetil Westby Bjørkaas, project manager in Arctic Train, who welcomes everyone to both the northern lights show and arctic experiences.

Audio guide with app - simple

– We are happy that we can finally meet the great demand for guiding along the train route. This has been long-awaited, says Bjørkaas enthusiastically!

-Now all our tourists get to hear the stories along the route in a professional way, on their own mobile.

-Lydguiden, the Voice Of Norway app, is easy to use and suitable for everyone.

-QR code for downloading the app can be found on the electronic ticket and on signs in all carriages. Personnel are of course also helpful when needed, explains Bjørkaas.

Spectacular train route along Ofotbanen

-Do you want to experience the northern lights and the mighty arctic landscape that stretches from fjord to mountain ? We stop the train en route and give you the opportunity.

With the Ofotbanen , Northern Norway is getting a new tourism collaboration aimed at both Norwegians and international tourists. The line is one of Europe’s most beautiful train routes with steep mountain sides and great variety in nature and surroundings. With its 42 km and 20 tunnels, this is the northernmost track in Norway, says Bjørkaas. And we have a lot to offer, he continues.
