The historic Rauvassgården is a gem in the mountains outside Mo i Rana, perfect for larger groups on a trip together, or smaller groups looking for ample space.

“The Rauvassgården has been in operation since 1890, carrying with it a history as an old coaching inn and telegraph station, and an important stopover for those trading with Sweden. The history and old charm still linger in the house, even though it has been renovated to modern standards and comfort.

The farm has a total of twelve beds, spread across four bedrooms and a sleeping alcove in the loft. There is a kitchen and living room for self-catering on the ground floor, and a cozy loft living room on the second floor. In the dining room, you have the opportunity to set up a long table for 20 people, the kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, refrigerator, and coffee machine.

Great hiking opportunities

Right outside the door, you have Raudvatnet, and the surrounding area has numerous fishing lakes, large and small mountain peaks with excellent hunting opportunities. In the winter, you’ll find excellent opportunities for ice fishing on Raudvatnet, and it’s a short distance to well-prepared ski trails.
