Narvik has a perfect location in Northern Norway’s arctic landscape. The city is surrounded by beautiful scenery with mountains and fjords that characterize the area around Narvik. Right in the middle of the city, by the shore of Ofotfjorden Fjord, an impressive 16-story building emerges dwarfing everything around it.

Besides it’s modern architectural exterior, it offers a stylish interior with 148 beautiful and spacious guest rooms, an all-day restaurant on the 1st floor and the sky bar with a panoramic terrace on the top floor. The hotel facilitates for business travelers with 8 functional meeting rooms, where the largest room accommodates up to 175 people.

Our room was modern and very well equipped and the view behind the huge windows was nothing short of spectacular. We were also very impressed with the breakfast selection, offering both international cuisine and Norwegian delicacies.

Opened in March 2012 and already listed as the number one accommodation in Narvik, Rica Hotel is a great option for business travelers and tourists alike.
