Notes

Read practical information below

Træna island, Norway
  • Follow the cultural trail to chapels, cafés, museums on the island of Husøya

  • See artwork, hear music, and taste local foods as you explore on foot

  • Take in spectacular views across the islands and reefs of Træna

  • Choose to explore more by yourself on one of the island’s many paths, or take an Arctic dip

From the quay, your guide will walk you to the Water Tower for jaw-dropping views across Træna and the coast of Helgeland. Look out for scenes that give glimpses of everyday life here, from dry fish hanging under roof ridges to the faces of fishermen sat outside a shop. 

Next, admire paintings inside the Peter Dass chapel, a memorial to all who fought and disappeared at sea. Nearby, international artist Anawana Haloba’s sculpture references Træna’s almost 9,000 years of history and is accompanied by a specially composed soundtrack. 

After a coffee, snack, and some storytelling at the Aloha café, take the opportunity to pick up souvenirs in Malins Krambu before you continue to the Helgeland Museum, museum garden, church and tourist information centre. Your tour ends with classic fish cake and beer at Havfolkets Hus, a pub restaurant next to the pier and loved by locals.
