Description:
Olavsvern is a Royal Norwegian Navy auxiliary base located just outside the city of Tromsø. It is located along the European route E8 at the entrance to the Ramfjorden from the Balsfjorden.

The base is small compared to its counter, Haakonsvern in Bergen. It lost its status as an orlogsstasjon in 2002. It is now a subordinate unit of Haakonsvern and no units are permanently stationed there. A consequence of the restructuring of the Royal Norwegian Navy is that the base may be shut-down in the near future.

On 14 March 2005 an accident in a scuba exercise inside the base led to the death of SBS commander Lieutenant Colonel Richard van der Horst.
