In 1990 was Mona Grudt elected Miss Univers. She is now a official Ambassador of Hell. The village of Hell (have their own award winning site on the Internet), lies 30 km northeast of Trondheim on the E6 highway. Stone Age rock carvings prove that the district was populated as early as 6,000 years ago. The Hell district is today a well trafficked junction with many active businesses, including shops, a post office, a souvenir shop, kiosk, petrol station, garage, cafeteria, hotel and lumber industry etc.

Perhaps the most famous feature is Hell railway station and, of course, the sign (in Norwegian) stating "Gods Expedition". Although the station is now closed, trains do still stop to visit it.

Among English-speaking tourists, popular postcards depict the station with a heavy frost on the ground, making a visual joke about "Hell frozen over." Temperatures in Hell can reach -35°C during winter.

Trondheim Airport Værnes (Hell Airport), is the closest neighbour, and one of Norway"s best salmon and sea trout rivers, Stjørdalselva, joins the fjord at Hell. The Stjørdal Tourist Office, is close to Scandic Hell Hotel, near Hell bridge on the E6.
