Starting point

Join us on an exhilarating mountain adventure on the world’s northernmost via ferrata in the town of Mosjøen. Take the challenge, and feel the satisfaction, as you reach the summit!

What to expect?

  • Via ferrata means iron path. Clip yourself onto the cable that is securely attached to the mountainside, and ascend safely using the natural holds and steps in the rock. This mountain-climbing adventure doesn’t require any special knowledge or prior experience. The route is classified as B/C, easy to moderately difficult, making it a fun and exciting way to climb a mountain that is within most people’s reach.

  • Øyfjellet awaits you just outside Mosjøen town center. The first part of our journey climbs the newly-built sherpa path, up to the narrow Trongskaret Pass. The via ferrata itself starts at 350 meters. Here we connect your harness to the first stretch of cable. After a while, we reach a viewpoint, where we unpack our lunch and savor the incredible panorama of Mosjøen and its surroundings. The second stretch of the via ferrata takes us to the summit, 660 meters. Our descent follows a regular hiking trail down to the rock stairs called Helgelandstrappa, and finally to our starting point.

What is included?

  • Experienced guide
  • Helmet and a climbing harness, which has a built-in shock absorber and two carabiner slings

Is this experience for me?

  • All participants must be in fairly good shape, and not have difficulties with a little exposure to heights. However, no prior climbing experience is required.
  • All participants must be at least 12 years old and weigh at least 40 kg (88 lbs). Weight is important for the equipment to work properly.

What do I need to bring?

  • Wear sturdy hiking boots with soles that ensure good traction on the rocky slopes.
  • Even in the summer the mountain can be much cooler, and the weather is changeable, so please bring a windbreaker and windproof trousers, an extra sweater, a hat, and a neck gaiter in your day sack.
  • Gloves are also recommended.
  • In your day sack, also bring a packed lunch and a bottle of water.
