 ASP.NET MVC Model  Url Routing

I need to generate some URLs in a model in ASP.NET MVC. I'd like to call something like UrlHelper.Action() which uses the routes to generate the URL. I don't mind filling the usual blanks, like the hostname, scheme and so on.

Is there any method I can call for that? Is there a way to construct an UrlHelper?

I like Omar's answer but that's not working for me. Just for the record this is the solution I'm using now:

var httpContext = HttpContext.Current;

if (httpContext == null) {

  var request = new HttpRequest("/", "http://example.com", "");

  var response = new HttpResponse(new StringWriter());

  httpContext = new HttpContext(request, response);


var httpContextBase = new HttpContextWrapper(httpContext);

var routeData = new RouteData();

var requestContext = new RequestContext(httpContextBase, routeData);

return new UrlHelper(requestContext);
