Søsterbekk Station (Norwegian: Søsterbekk holdeplass) is a railway station in the municipality of Narvik in Nordland county, Norway. It's located along the Ofotbanen railway line, between Katterat Station and Bjørnfjell Station. It has direct railway connection to Narvik, Kiruna, and Luleå.

The station is primarily used by persons who have cabins in the area, and is located at an altitude of 457 metres (1,499 ft) above mean sea level. The station was originally opened in 1955, but it was moved in 1988 when a new route was built to circumvent the old and outdated Norddal Bridge that built in 1902.[1][2]
