transport from Harstad/Narvik airport to Tysfjord?

In early Dec I am going to need to get from the Harstad/Narvik airport to Tysfjord where I will be staying to see the northern lights. Will be arriving late afternoon local time. Any suggestions on the best way to get from the airport to Tysfjord? Thanks

Tysfjord is an area and there are settlements on both sides of the fjord. Advise would depend on where you are going, what time of day exactly and what day of the week.

You can get to Narvik on the airport coach regardless, but Tysfjord is a remote fjord area where public transport is sparse and infrequent.

Assuming my flight from Oslo is on time, I land at 3:05pm on Wed Dec 9. I need to get from the airport to a hotel called the Tysfjord Turistsenter. Based on that additional info, any advice you have will be appreciated. Thanks

Travel planner - https://www.177nordland.no/index.php…

Narvik rutebilstasjon to Storjord(Tysfjord) - last departure 16:10 gets you there 18:19. However airport bus to Narvik at 15:15 which I guess is supposed to service your flight gets to Narvik at 16:30 - too late for that bus..

So unless the Turistsenter comes up with some idea you'll either have to overnight in Narvik or hire a car.

There is a 15:15 bus from airport to Lødingen, then ferry Lødingen-Bognes, from Bognes a short taxi ride to Storjord and your accomodation. The 15:15 bus is meant to meet your flight and will wait in case of delays.

Thank you very much for your replies. The person I booked with at the hotel mentioned a "airport shuttle" that I could arrange for 350 NOK. Any thoughts on that option?

Sorry, unfamiliar with that one. Only familiar with the airport buses to Narvik/Harstad/Lødingen.

Their private transport? NOK350 per person or by car? Includes ferry?

Doesn't sound like a bad deal whatever.
