Level 2: Moderate - some mobility needed
Wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes suitable for that day’s weather.
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 of everyday life here, from people hanging dry fish under roof ridges to the faces of fishermen outside shops.
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, pick up some souvenirs in Malins Krambu before moving on to the Helgeland Museum, museum garden, church, and tourist information center. Your tour ends with a classic fish cake and a beer at Havfolkets Hus, a pub and restaurant next to the pier that is loved by locals.
