Arctic Train - The Northernmost Railway in Norway
An unforgettable journey With towering mountains, dramatic waterfalls and fantastic views of the fjord, this journey goes through a beautiful and wild arctic landscape. The train makes several stops along the way to ensure you get the most out of the trip, and with the help of the "Voice of Norway" app you can listen to the history of the places you pass on the journey. Ofotbanen The construction of the Ofotbanen started at the end of the 19th century and stretched a couple of years into the next century. The railway was built to ensure access to an ice-free export port for the huge iron ore deposits from northern Sweden. Itinerant workers, so-called "rallers" sought their fortune in what was referred to as Europe's "Klondyke", and at most over 5,000 people were involved in the construction of the track.
Mosjøen via ferrata and Zipline
Join us on an exhilarating mountain adventure on the world’s northernmost via ferrata. Via ferrata means “iron path”. 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. The first part of our journey climbs the newly-built Sherpa Path, up the narrow Trongskaret pass. We connect your harness to the first stretch of cable. After a while, we reach a viewpoint where we unpack our lunch and savour the incredible panorama of Mosjøen and its environs. The second stretch of the via ferrata takes us to the summit, 660 metres. Our descent follows a regular hiking trail down to the rock stairs called Helgelandstrappa, and to the starting point of the zipline. Your flight down the 700 metre long zipline takes you across the river and lands you safely in the gardens of Fru Haugans Hotel.
Hiking Day Trip to Keiservarden, Classic & Easy Hike in Bodo, Northern Norway
Keiservarden is a real classic for the people of Bodø. This mountain plateau is Bodø’s most visited hiking destination and is renowned for the wonderful views of the city, sea and the Lofoten islands. Keiservarden is one of the best places to experience the Midnight Sun. Keiservarden is the number one hiking destination for many in Bodø. Keiservarden is 366 m above sea level and climbing to the summit is not a very demanding hike. The view from the top – you might be able to see the silhouette of the Lofoten, the islands of Værøy and Røst (the two outermost islands in Lofoten). To the east you will see the many peaks of the spectacular Børvasstind mountain range and the mountains near the Swedish border. Stone stairs – several alternative routes lead to the top. In 2016 Sherpas from Nepal built stone stairs along our route, which saves the terrain from wear.
Mjelle Beach - Easy Coastal Day Hike to Bodos no 1 Beach, Northern Norway

eBike Northern Lights Chase
This unique tour will take you from the city centre and through the local living areas before leaving the asphalt on to gravel roads and easy paths until we reach the bottom of the climb up to peak Keiservarden. From there it is a 4,5 km ride 360 metres uphill - but no worries, your eBike will help keeping the heart rate down, although a little self effort and a light sweat is necessary. We take breaks as needed and at the top we spend some time looking at the fantastic view 360 degrees. This is a prime spot for watching the Aurora Borealis play up, undisturbed of the city lights. Downhill is easy and as exiting as you preferr - just keep your speed at a comfortable level and don't scare those on a hike up.
