Sweden

One of today's excursions was the Ofoten Railway from Narvik to Riksgränsen in Sweden. The Norwegian/Swedish border is actually
inside the last tunnel before we reached the ski resort.

The hotel supplied us with coffee and buns before our return journey along this spectacular line that eventually leads to Stockholm.

We had a slight delay on our return to the Marco Polo due to a gas leak in the harbour area. We had just been offered a run back
into Narvik centre on one of the buses when the area was declared safe and we returned to the ship where they'd kept the Bistro open
for us.
