Toppen Panorama, a hotel in Mosjøen that is open during the summer, offers a panoramic view of both this coastal town and the nearby fjord. Guests here enjoy tranquillity and scenic surroundings, and yet are only a few minutes’ drive away from the centre of Mosjøen

This summer hotel is operated by the local “folk high school” – and during the summer you can rent a room or even a holiday house at this boarding school.

Rent a room or a house

When you rent a room, you have it completely to yourself. The houses available are detached units with four bedrooms, each equipped with two single beds – eight beds total. Moreover, each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The house also has a fully equipped kitchen, allowing you to make the food of your choice. There is also a living room with a dining area. These houses are an ideal choice for one or two families, or a group of friends on holiday together.

If you do not need a whole house, you can rent a room in the dormitories. These have shared bathrooms, as well as a shared kitchen and lounge. These rooms are well suited for travellers looking for reasonable accommodation and who enjoy meeting new people.

Overnight guests are welcome to use the laundry room during the day.

Toppen Panorama makes it easy for guests to prepare their own food. Whether you are preparing dinner or baking, you will find that each kitchen is fully equipped. Nearby are a several grocery stores and two gas stations. Just below Toppen, there is a good Chinese restaurant that offers catering as well as dine-in meals.

If you want a more serious hike, you can ascend “Tårnet” (“The Tower”); the summit awards you with a magnificent panorama of the fjord.
