From Mo i Rana to Rødøy

Mo i Rana is a town below the Arctic circle, surrounded by beautiful scenery. The oldest part of town is Moholmen. Near the harbour, the 10-metre-high sculpture Ocean Man stands watch. Visit the river park Klokkerhagen – and do consider attending a performance by Nordland Theatre.
