Rorbus and waterside cabins | The Træna archipelago is surrounded by the open sea. Træna Rorbuferie is situated on Husøya, the most populated of these islands. Here, amidst magnificent scenic surroundings, you have a golden opportunity to experience the thriving coastal culture of a vibrant island community.
On Husøya you can explore by walking paths and lightly-trafficked roads, visit the Petter Dass chapel and other highlights, and at day’s end take a refreshing swim and relax in the sauna. Several restaurants offer very satisfying dining. For an excellent cup of coffee, head for Træna Kaffekollektiv, which roasts its own beans.
To visit some the other islands in the archipelago, you catch the local express boat, or rent a boat from Træna Rorbuferie. You can also rent bicycles and explore the islands of your choice on two wheels, or go on a deep-sea fishing trip. The size of the fish that are regularly caught in the nearby seas is impressive.
Idyllically situated right at the waters edge are numerous rorbu, the traditional fishermen’s cabins. These are extra spacious, each with two bedrooms, a living room, kitchenette and bathroom. This tranquil holiday accommodation will truly make you feel that you have left the stress and pressures of everyday life far behind.
These rorbu cabins are available year round. Each season on Træna has its unique charm; your experience can range from hefty winter storms to summer eves when the sky glows even at midnight.
Boat and bike rental
What better holiday adventure than renting a boat, pulling a large fish out of the sea and over the gunwale, and then feasting on fresh-caught cod and almandine potatoes on your seaside terrace?
The island of Husøya has roughly 6 km of lightly-trafficked roads, making them ideal for exploring the island at your own chosen tempo.
