Adventure beckons on the Ofoten Railway as you journey to the Swedish border. While you gaze at the wild, rugged and barren mountain plateaus, consider how, at the time of construction, this 43km line was both the coldest and northern-most railway project in the world, painstakingly carved out of the mountains. Look out across the southern cliffs to towering Bjørnfjell, which stands 512m above sea level. Spot the Norwegian and Swedish flags painted on the tunnel wall that mark the border between the two countries, before disembarking at Riksgränsen, Sweden's northernmost ski-resort.
