I agree with previous - probably Steinkjer district/parish of Nord-Trøndelag, Norway.
I don't see "Helland" farm(s) there but Hælen and Hallan farms in the 1865 census and slight spelling changes in the 1900 Norwegian census.

You can't know for sure unless you can look for actual people and you really can't know you've found them if you can't look for WHEN they were born there there, other family names, etc.

The 1865 census does show an Ole Johnson on one of the farms connected to Hælen or Hallan -- a mans common name so you'd definitely have to compare to other info.
