NARVIK or Victoriahavn, a seaport on the Ofoten Fjord of the north-west coast of Norway, in Nordland amt (county), 68° 30' N. It is wholly modern, developed by the construction and completion (1903) of the Ofoten railway, the most northerly in the world. There are extensive quays, from which is shipped the iron ore from the rich districts traversed by the line. Narvik is 167 m. N.W. of Gellivara, and 982 N. by W. of Stockholm by the railway. In summer express trains cover the whole distance in two days. Narvik is a convenient point from which to visit the beautiful Lofoten Islands.
