Northern Norway Nordland Sørfold

Rago National Park

  • Straumen
  •  /  km From You

Rago National Park is one of Norway’s oldest national parks. It was established in 1971 to preserve an untouched Nordland mountain landscape bordering Padjelanta National Park in Sweden, which in turn borders two other national parks, Sarek and Stora Sjöfallet. Collectively, these four national parks create one of the largest continuous wilderness areas in Europe.

Rago is a relatively small national park but is guaranteed to offer memorable nature-based experiences. The richly contrasting landscape from the fjord to the mountains offers crystal clear rivers, thundering waterfalls, peaceful pine forests, smooth rock formations and jagged cliffs. As there is virtually no infrastructure development here, Rago offers the feeling of being in genuine wilderness. However, you will need to manage on your own as there is virtually no accommodation or other facilities. The challenging terrain here means that hiking trips are often more demanding than they appear on the map.

Rago’s most beautiful view of the mighty Litlverivassfossen waterfall can be enjoyed from the viewpoint on the Grisryggen ridge. The typical “Rago picture” is taken from here. Reaching the viewpoint is a nice day hike from the car park at Litjsand (5.5 km each way). If you are looking for a slightly more strenuous hike, the “Rago circuit” offers a real taste of Rago’s wilderness. This 20 km route on a marked path starts from Lakshol at the head of the Nordfjord. You can spread this hike over two days and stay overnight at lake Storskogvatnet, which is roughly halfway round. You can make use Statskog’s open hut or rent a cabin through the local association of hunters and anglers (Fauske & Sørfold JFF). There are also find beautiful tent sites along the entire route.
