Mo i Rana (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈmuː i ˈrɑ̀ːnɑ]) is a town and the administrative centre of the municipality of Rana in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the Helgeland region of Nordland, just south of the Arctic Circle. Some of the outlying areas of the town include the suburbs of Båsmoen and Ytteren in the north and Selfors in the east and Åga/Hauknes/Dalsgrenda in the south. The town is called "Mo i Rana" to distinguish it from other places named Mo (including the town of Mosjøen, also in Helgeland) though locally the town is usually just called Mo. The postal address for Mo was "Mo 8600" until it was changed to "Mo i Rana 8600" in 1999. The 12.03-square-kilometre (2,970-acre) town has a population (2018) of 18,866 and a population density of 1,568 inhabitants per square kilometre (4,060/sq mi). This makes it the largest town in Helgeland and the second largest town (after Bodø) in Nordland county.
