Close to the Arctic Circle

Welcome to Mo i Rana, the latest member of CNNS, which is going on the offensive to attract cruise lines to a town traditionally regarded as an industrial community. However, there are many hidden treasures here.

Located in the “middle of Norway” close to the Arctic Circle, Mo i Rana has large and varied surroundings, stretching from the beautiful Helgeland coast, via fjords and mountains far into the Swedish wilderness.
