The small town of Mosjøen stands on the E6 trunk road heading north at the head of Vefsnfjord in northern Norway. Visitors who hire a car in Mosjøen can tour the area's scenery of water, forests and mountains. Further afield, the city of Bodø is 2 miles north, right on the edge of the country. Mosjøen Airport is about five miles south of the town which makes for the perfect entry point. Mountains rise up from the outskirts of the town and Oyfjellet to the west of the town is the best-known local peak.
If you arrive and hire a car in Mosjøen, your first impressions might be seeing one of Europe's biggest aluminium factories and the big and busy cargo port. But Mosjøen has plenty more for visitors to see. It is famous for the Sjøgata, or 'Sea Street', which runs along the banks of the Vefsna. This has the biggest collection of historic wooden buildings in northern Norway and is now a tourist area of restored boathouses and piers, with attractive restaurants, galleries and shops. The Vefsn Museum and Kulturverkstedet arts centre are both here too. Two popular 18th-century attractions are the beautifully restored wooden Fru Haugans Hotel in the town centre, the oldest hotel in northern Norway, and the red octagonal Dolstad Church. The town's park is considered one of the finest in Norway.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
