At the heart of Nordland County, in the geographic middle of Norway, is the friendly town of Mosjøen. Here you can join Hi North on an exhilarating mountain adventure on the world’s northernmost via ferrata. Take the challenge and feel the satisfaction as you reach the summit!

Via ferrata means “iron path”. Clip yourself onto the cable that is securely attached to the mountainside, and ascend safely using the natural holds and steps in the rock. This mountain-climbing adventure doesn’t require any specialised knowledge or prior experience. The route is classified as B/C, easy to moderately difficult, making it a fun and exciting way to climb a mountain that is within most people’s reach.

Øyfjellet Mountain awaits you just outside Mosjøen town centre. The first part of your journey climbs the Sherpa Path, up the narrow Trongskaret pass. The via ferrata itself starts at 350 metres altitude. Here your harness will be connected to the first stretch of cable. After a while, you reach a viewpoint where the hole group unpack their lunch and savour the incredible panorama of Mosjøen and its environs. The second stretch of the via ferrata take you to the summit, 660 metres. The descent follows a regular hiking trail down to the rock stairs called Helgelandstrappa, and thence to the starting point.

For more incredible adrenaline rush, soar down Mosjøen’s Zip-Line. This awesome airborne ride carries you across the Vefsna river (700 metres) landing you safely in the gardens of Fru Haugans Hotel.

Where to meet up

We meet up on the “island” near the foot of the mountain called Øyfjellet. The walk from the town centre to the island takes about 15 minutes. Just follow the signs towards the airport and walk (or drive) across the bridge, then immediately turn right and continue towards the mountain until you see a large flag and Hi North’s hut. We’ll provide you with the necessary information and equipment before we start our excursion.
