A brief panoramic drive through the streets of Harstad leads you to the scenic Trondenes Peninsula area, where you will discover relics of Norway's storied Viking past and of World War II.
Travel to the Trondenes Peninsula -- home to the northernmost stone church in Norway, dating from the late Middle Ages. One of the foremost cultural heritage sites in Norway from this period, the church houses several artifacts and boasts a very beautiful interior.
You'll also visit the Trondenes Historical Center to gain an insight into the history of Northern Norway. View the exhibits and watch a multi-media presentation. Journey through the Bronze Age, Viking times and medieval era through to World War II and the present day.
The Adolf Gun -- the world's largest land-based gun -- was built in 1943 by the occupying German troops. The bunker beneath the cannon is home to an exhibition centered on the gun's history, its construction, and its planned use as part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall. Today, the Adolf Gun is the only one of its kind remaining in the world.

There are 26 steps to negotiate at the Historical Center and 37 steps at the Adolf Gun; 1¼ hours of walking and standing are required at the gun emplacement.
