Are you interested in using Storheia Arena for a bigger event and wondering what is allowed and what is not?
Interested in using Storheia Arena?
Questions and answers
Can I drive up now as it is laid asphalt?
Those who have business interests along this route are allowed to drive. For example, Norkring runs the mast at Storheia and they have a number of subcontractors who perform work up there on their behalf.
The speed limit is 30 km/h and vehicles should pay attention and hold back for big group of road users.
Do I get up to Storheia with a wheelchair?
Yes you do. Pretty much all electric wheelchairs can go through the “hatch” in the gate. Different wheelchairs have been tested with different weights. At the steepest level there is a 16 degree rise and most of the newer wheelchairs have managed this just fine. Some have chosen to drive all the way up to the top, while others chose Ørnheihytta as their last stop. It is at Ørnheihytta we consider it most sensible to have a wheelchair charger established. In the summer time, this cabin is often staffed and offers easy dining in great surroundings.

Can there be more than five events?
No. There has been a written demand from the landowners that there should be no more than five major events, and we agree. There will be a maximum of five events and they will be evaluated and decided by the management group but in the long term a separate operating organization will handle this.
Please contact the project leader if you are interested in having an event here.
Who will decide which events should be allowed to be among the five?
How much money has Hadsel municipality spent on this?
How much intervention is needed?
Beyond this, only benches will be set along the road and different kinds of vantage points will be created. All actions must be reversible and harmonize with the surroundings.
Furthermore, we want to use technology to create experiences and these will not lead to significant interference with nature.
Is it possible that the project will be even bigger, with a gondola course and such, like mentioned earlier?
How will the finance be from here on?
How will you prepare for the disabled?
Can you promise that all events will be sustainable?
How will the project affect today's use of Storheia?
What agreements apply to the Red Cross cabin (Ørnheihytta)?
What do we mean by Arena? Is it a big facility and large installations?
We do not want more traffic than this, we agree with the landowners that there must be a maximum of 5 events. The traffic below these through the boom must be necessary traffic to arrange sports or cultural events. It will not be opened to public traffic (cars) and similar vehicles.
Why not drive tourist buses up?
Where can I provide inputs for this project?
