At the heart of Nordland County, in the geographic middle of Norway, is the friendly town of Mosjøen. On Storfjellet, right near Øyfjellet just outside town center, is Northern Norway’s most spectacular zip-line.
Fly from a perch 70 metres up Storfjellet, savouring a bird’s eye view of the historic Sjøgata Street and the town’s environs, and soar over the Vefsna river before landing safely in the beautiful gardens of Fru Haugans Hotel, the oldest hotel in Northern Norway.
Before takeoff, Hi North secure your body harness to the strong wire. An automatic braking system ensures a safe airborne adventure! And one of the guides is always on hand – for both your take-off and landing. Minimum age: 10 years, min. weight: 30 kg (66 lbs) and max. weight 110 kg (242 lbs).
What do I need to keep in mind?
It’s important that you place all loose items in zippered pockets or in your backpack. If you want to use a camera, it must be tied or otherwise securely attached to your body, harness or helmet. If you have long hair, it should be tied back with a hair band or elastic.
Booking, and when and where to meet up
Your zipline ticket must be booked in advance. Your ticket is valid for one hour; e.g., if your booking is for 1pm, you have to take your zipline ride by 2pm. Please note: If you intend first to hike the mountain, this must be agreed to in advance.
We meet at the foot of Øyfjellet, on an “island“ that is a 15-minute walk from the town centre. Follow the signs towards the airport and walk or drive across the bridge. Turn right immediately and continue towards the mountain until you see Hi North’s hut and large flag. After receiving your safety harness, walk on your own to the top of the zipline, which is about 10 minutes away.
Welcome for an incredible adrenaline rush!
NB! For an expanded adventure, consider combining your zipline ride with the Mosjøen Via Ferrata. The Via Ferrata climb takes 4–5 hours.
