The plans for a new dive resort in the Plura valley were revealed to the public last Friday. The building will put the municipality of Mo i Rana on the world map, writes local newspaper Rana Blad.

Visit Plura owner Ina Trælnes says the new resort will be rigged for full-year operations and will offer them the opportunity to do dive courses all year. The ambitious plans have attracted a lot of attention, as well as support.

Rana county offered a $25.000 support grant enabling them to launch the preliminary project already in 2021, Visit Plura writes on their Facebook page.

Great facilities

The new 400 m2 dive resort will offer accommodation, technical rooms and facilities for divers and equipment, a swimming pool, dive shop, lunge, kitchen, and a restaurant with an outdoor area.

– Most important, this will be an environmentally friendly building designed to blend into the natural surroundings, Trælnes says to the local newspaper.

The building will be surrounded by forest and will be located right next to the entrance to the Plura cave, with accommodation in separate units in the immediate vicinity.

Explorer lodge

The new dive resort has been designed by architects Tanken Arkitektur, with environmental sustainability being one of the core values. The idea is to conserve nature as much as possible while enhancing the uniqueness of the site and what the area has to offer.

– We imagine the building as an «explorer lodge», a basecamp in Plura valley where you can find calm, recharge your batteries, explore and experience nature, the architects write on their website.

The unveiling was attended by the parliamentary representative and former defence and foreign minister Espen Barth-Eide, mayor Geir Waage and technical manager Jan Erik Furunes from Rana county, representatives from Hemnes county, Visit Helgeland and Innovation Norway.
