The regional airports of Mo i Rana and Mosjøen have several daily departures to Bodø and Trondheim. The closest station on the Nordlandsbanen railway is Bjerka. On weekdays during the school year, there is a bus service to Nord-Røssvatnet from Mo i Rana. The hosts can arrange to pick you up in Korgen or Bjerka.
If you are driving highway E6 from farther north, then in Korgen take the turnoff towards Bleikvassli, and then head for Røssvatnet. If you are arriving by car from the south, we recommend taken the scenic Wilderness Road (Villmarksveien). Take the turnoff towards Fiplingdal and Hattfjelldal, just north of Majavatn. Then continue along the western shore of Røssvatnet lake to Bleikvassli. For intrepid hikers arriving on foot, whether from north or south, it is easiest to follow Nordlandsruta. Coming over from Sweden, you can cross the border via Hemavan or Rönes and walk through the valley of Tängvassdalen, a five-hour hike.
