From Mosjøen to Nesna Via Mo I Rana

Start the day with a stroll along Sjøgata, the street that is the historic center of Mosjøen, with houses dating from the 19th century. Climb the Sherpa Steps up Øyfjellet, take the via ferrata and zip-line challenges, or just swim and relax at the town beach.

Then drive north towards Korgen on highway E6, but instead of the tunnel choose the scenic route across the Korgfjellet pass, savouring the views and stopping for a meal at the summit inn. Continue towards Korgen. Consider a hike up to the striking Rabothytta, a lodge perched on the edge of the glacier or take a detour to visit Innerdalen Farm in Brygfjelldalen.

Worthwhile excursions from Mo i Rana include walking on the Svartisen glacier, a visit to “the marble castle”, and a tour of the caves. The town has many shopping opportunities.

When you’re ready, take the Coastal Highway Fv17 across the Sjonfjellet pass, stopping at the viewpoint for a panorama of Helgeland’s coast and islands. Continue to Nesna, which offers additional nature adventures. From Nesna you can take the ferry to the island of Lovund and the Træna archipelago. We also suggest a visit to the beautiful island of Tomma, just outside Nesna.
