Delays in the traintraffic at Trønderbane (Trondheim - Steinkjer)


In southern Nordland lies a city known as "the city in the middle of Norway". Mosjøen is the eldest city in the pictoresque region of Helgeland, and rests right under the majestic Øyfjellet mountain, with its 818 meters above sea level.

With over 3,000 steps, these fantastic stairs, built by Nepali sherpas on the Øyfjellet mountain, are known as the Helgeland stairs. The Helgeland staris are one of the longest stone stairs in the world! Luckily you will find stone benches on your way up for a well deserved break! Once on top, you can take the best panoramic pictures of Mosjøen, its fjord and the river Vefsna.

Participate on exciting tours for the Via Ferrata and the Zipline departing from the Øyfjellet mountain. You can book these activities together or separately. If you take the Zipline you will slide 70 meters over the sea across the river and arrive at the Fru Haugans hotel in under a minute! Once there you can celebrate with some food and a cold drink. Cheers!

Rich in history: Sjøgata

This old street is located downtown, dates back to the 19th century and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. A walk along Sjøgata, with its small coffee shops and art galleries, is a must when you are visiting Helgeland! Make sure to bring your camera and take the most pictoresque photos to show you family and friends!

More than a hotel

Fru Haugans Hotel has taken good care of its visitors since 1794. Book one or more tourist packages at the reception, and make the most out of your visit. We do also wholeheartedly recommend a three-course dinner at the hotel’s Restaurant Ellen.

When the weather is nice, we recommend a cup of coffee and a snack in the hotel’s garden, with spectacular views to the fjord and the Øyfjellet mountain. Fru Haugans Hotel lies at the end of Sjøgata, the city’s most popular landmark.
