The Arctic Circle Centre

The Arctic Circle Centre is situated 80 kilometres north of Mo i Rana and 70 kilometres south of Fauske.

The Arctic Circle Centre is situated by the E6 highway at Saltfjellet in the county of Nordland. It is also situated in a national park with wonderful hiking opportunities.

In the area around the centre, there are Russian and Yugoslavian war memorials from World War II. The centre's architecture is adapted to the surrounding nature, and a path made of marble shows how the Arctic Circle runs through the centre.
 
At the centre you will find a cafeteria serving Norwegian food, a large souvenir/gift shop and an exhibition covering art, marble and stuffed arctic animals - including Europe's largest stuffed polar bear.

There is an excellent movie theatre showing the multi-vision programme "Northern Norway". You will find a post office selling postcards with a special Arctic Circle seal.

The Arctic Circle Centre is open from 1 May to 15 September.
