At the heart of Nordland County, in the geographic middle of Norway, is the friendly town of Mosjøen. Here you can join us on an exhilarating mountain adventure on the world’s northernmost via ferrata. Take the challenge and feel the satisfaction as you reach the summit!
Via ferrata means “iron path”. Clip yourself onto the cable that is securely attached to the mountainside, and ascend safely using the natural holds and steps in the rock. 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.
Øyfjellet Mountain awaits you just outside by Mosjøen town centre, . The first part of our journey climbs the Sherpa Path, up the narrow Trongskaret pass. The via ferrata itself starts at 350 metres altitude. Here 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 thence to our starting point.
