Moi Rana, Nordland

Mo i Rana is the gateway to the Arctic Circle, which crosses its municipal boundaries from east to west. With a population of some 25,000 people, it is the third-largest city in the north of Norway.
Credit for the city's recent rapid population growth goes to the steel and iron industry. In fact, the buildings here are industrial, ugly boxes for the most part, though they are welcoming havens on cold and windy days.

Use Mo i Rana as a gateway to one of the largest wildernesses in Europe. It is not known for its grand architecture, but for the magnificent setting that it occupies, with adventure travel possible in all directions.
