Fly to Mo i Rana

Mo i Rana is famous for its iron mines, and for its proximity to nature. The town is just south of the Arctic Circle, where there is midnight sun and polar night.

From here, you can as easily get to the Swedish border as to the coast. There are many opportunities here! You can rent a bicycle or a kayak and explore the nearby islands. Or you could hike the Svartisen glacier, the second-largest glacier in Norway.

For peace of mind, ‘Mo’ is the place to go. The weather is milder here than on the coast, and you can visit the nice cafés and shops downtown.
 

Activities in Mo i Rana

Maybe you’d like to explore a mysterious cave? Setergrotta will change the way you see mountain formations and pique your curiosity. Water and ice have transformed the cave over hundreds of thousands of years. Don your headlamp and explore!

The mountains surrounding the town are easily accessible for the whole family. From there, you can continue on hikes that could last several days. If you do, you should stop by Rabothytta, just north of the Okstind glacier. This architect-designed cabin was built in 2014 as the Norwegian Trekking Association’s 500th cabin.

You could also visit the islands Nesna, Rødøy and Tomma. Go fish! Or just enjoy the scenery and the mesmerizing northern lights.
