City walk

The last execution in 1674, the construction of the church financed by the Sami, the first school in Nordland, AS Norsk Jernverk, restructuring and success stories. All this you will hear about on our city walk. On the edge of the Arctic Circle, near Svartisen, is the second largest city in Nordland, called Mo i Rana. Headquartered in Rana Municipality with a total of 18,900 inhabitants. Big enough for us who live here, because we have what we need to thrive and have a good life.

Guided tour to Svartisen

Svartisen is simply one of the things one MUST see in this life. The glacier arm that lies down the mountainside is full of cracks, and the blue color stands in strong contrast to the white snow that lies on top. Imagine that Svartiskongen spent his entire adult life in the summers up here. And the expeditions. Really fantastic that a little bit of Norway is so world famous!

5 hour guided tour to Norway’s second largest glacier, Svartisen. Including boat ticket, guide and lunch. From NOK 1 250, – pr. person.

Guided hike to Bertelberget

We park at the power plant at Anleggshammeren and go up the road to where we take off towards Bertelberget. The road is quite flat, and the path further goes up and down a bit, but no worse than it is easy to follow. It is a very good path to begin with, but you must always turn right when the path splits, even if it looks steepest, otherwise you risk ending up in the wrong place. A small cairn is located on a peak, just as it tells us that we are on the right path. The trip is in relatively easy terrain, and we will use approx. 4 hours in total. Up by the old mine, we grab a bite to eat, before returning.

Hear the story and see the place the blacksmith Bertel Olsen found and extracted silvery lead shine already at the end of the 17th century. 2 1/2 hour guided hike and storytelling. Start at 15:30. From 795, – pr. person.

Guided hike to the Marble Castle

We park at the old farm Fisktjønna. Here you see traces of those who broke up the country and built a life. On the trip through the nature reserve, it becomes more and more clear what the ground consists of. Limestone is a large part of the rock here, and when we arrive at the Marble Castle, a castle built by nature even through millennia, you see the result of loose rock masses such as lime having been washed into the river for thousands of years.

Guided 4 hour hike to Marble Castle. Including guide. From NOK 595, – pr. person.

Guided hike to Tjuvtrappa

The forest is there, green and fragrant. As you walk up the heavy slopes, you suck in all the impressions; the bird life, the small rivers that plunge down the slopes, people who enjoy hiking. All good sounds that get stuck in the soul and give wonderful memories. On the way up you walk past beautiful streams, Varmosletta is there with benches and stage, and maybe you feel extra to drink water from the spring midway up the hill. Thieves’ stairs. The place got its name because a woman stole a cow at Loftfjellgården and pulled it up the mountainside called Tjuvtrappa, and further down towards Selfors.

Guided hike to historic Dalselv

Winter has not yet let go of the roof properly. It is the middle of May 1940, and the snow is still in the mountains. The telephone still holds the grip on Dalselv, only the upper inches of the earth thaw as the sun sets. Little by little, the summer is getting closer.

The road up from Korgen, turns through large agricultural valleys and past several houses on the way up.

Skiing and summit-trip Mo I Rana

The cold bites in the cheeks. The snow makes a loud noise as the skis move forward.

Fishing with a guide in Mo I Rana.

The mosquito buzzes in the evening sun. You follow the guide to the fishing lake. The path winds through bushes and over heather, but it is easy to find. I think I had never found this water on my own. Still good someone could take me. After a short time, the fishing water appears. It is lying there, shiny and quiet. Suddenly, the water surface is broken by a fish that sticks its mouth out and swallows a nymph.

Fishing for Salmon in Rana river.

You’re waiting. And waiting. Throws. And throws again. Then, suddenly, it bites, and the line begins to live its own, wild life. – It is now or never, you think. The expert advice to you is to take your time when you turn in. If you force the fish up too fast, it can release the bait and set down the river at turbo speed. Therefore, it is important to be patient but determined. When the fish is finally on land, you probably have maximum heart rate!

Carpenter Haakon Loe

Sawdust. Pine, spruce and oak. Chisel, hammer and planer. Varnish and paint, paint and tincture. As much as you may have never seen before, or maybe you have used a lot of it or seen it with grandpa.

Everything comes from a time when the craft was in the driver’s seat. The pictures of old buildings and people; everything testifies to a time that is so foreign to us today. Then manual work was a matter of course. How did he manage to elicit these shapes from a single wooden plank? Magi?

Come and experience the atmosphere of a bygone era! Our guides will tell you about his life, the tools and products he made, and show you the carpentry workshop. From 195, – pr. person
