Ballangen is a pleasant, lively site conveniently located on the edge of a fjord with a small sandy beach, with direct access off the main E6 road. The 150 marked touring pitches are mostly on sandy grass, with electricity (16A) available to all. There are a few hardstandings, also 52 cabins for rent. A TV room has tourist information, coffee and games machines and there is a heated outdoor pool and waterslide (charged), free fjord fishing and boat hire. An interesting excursion is to the nearby Martinstollen mine where visitors are guided through the dimly lit Olav Shaft, 500 m. into the mountain.
Narvik with its wartime connections and museums is 40 km. away.
