From a concert in a barn and theater festival to glamping and gourmet – get great ideas for cool experiences that you can give away to someone you love.
We don’t need more things. We need more fun! We can never have enough of good memories – and here are the Christmas gift ideas that everyone will be happy with, all within a radius of 40 minutes from Mo i Rana city centre.
All you need is låve
Former cowsheds with a barn have become a COWsy concert arena and meeting
place at Kroglia cultural farm in Grønfjelldal. On this farm, they cultivate concert experiences and cheerful meetings between people. Artists of national caliber
shine from the stage in Låven, and the hosts always offer you food and transport to/from the city in connection with events.
Cultural experiences all year round
Park 22 is a cultural meeting point in the center of Mo i Rana. Concerts, revues and stand-ups with national, international and local artists take place here all year round. In this iconic building, synergies are created in the center with cultural, memorable experiences.
Vinterlysfestivalen – the experience you didn’t know you needed
During seven magical days in February, Mo i Rana is filled with happy, culturally engaged people in a festive mood. The perfect opportunity to get together, enjoy life and get your pulse up – or down. Vinterlys is an annual cultural event in Mo i Rana with more than 150 events where it almost overflows with sensual impressions and performing arts. Rarely does the audience leave a performance untouched.
Culinary art at Til Elise – Fra Marius
In idyllic surroundings on the old Utskarpen farm, you will visit Til Elise and be served food from Marius. Here you are invited to a homely and unforgettable gourmet experience.
In the Fra Marius restaurant, the focus is on local products and ingredients. The concept “from field to table” is based on the best ingredients, how they are created, where they can be found and how they are prepared. For a complete experience, you can spend the night in one of Elise’s pleasant rooms, in rural surroundings between fjord and mountains.
Get the real sauna experience in Plura Valley
Here, at the top of Plurdalen, half an hour’s drive from Mo i Rana, they have a traditional Finnish wood-fired sauna. They prepare everything for you so that you can have a relaxing sauna session. The sauna is located right by the river Plura, which makes it perfect for taking a dip in the cold water!
Plura Valley is perhaps best known for offering a world-class underwater adventure, including Northern Europe’s largest water-filled cave, and is a destination for cave divers from all over the world.
I ro og mak (In peace and quiet) at Straumen farm
Stay cozy and feel the heat, light and smell from the crackling wood stove while you enjoy the feeling of being in the open air. Camping takes new heights, with glamping in the forest bubble at Straumen farm, half an hour’s drive from Mo i Rana.
Spend the night in a “sky bed” with a view upwards and beyond, and experience Northern Norway’s bright summer nights or dark winter days.
Høyt & Lavt (high and low)- a highlight for the whole family
Krokstrand Fjellpark is located at the foot of Saltfjellet, 60 kilometers north of Mo i Rana – surrounded by beautiful mountain nature. Great experiences await here for the whole family. An excellent starting point for short and long mountain hikes all year round, and Northern Norway’s first High & Low climbing park. Here you experience play, mastery and learning in the treetops. The park is open from early May to mid-October. The day can be topped off with dinner in the traditional café at Krokstrand.
