Træna Arctic Fishing

Selvær, the second-biggest island of the Træna archipelago, is a quiet and cosy fishing community. Like the rest of Træna, it faces the open sea and lies far from the mainland. Here, you can stay in a modern quayside holiday apartment, and experience scenic Helgeland at its best. You will find excellent fishing, literally thousands of islets and skerries, amazing birdlife, and skies that glow late into the summer nights.

KRED Pub & Café in Brønnøysund

This is the most popular venue for local musicians as well as established artists. The pub has a big-city feel to it, and when you’re hungry, the chef offers tasty dishes. KRED is also popular as a stand-up stage, the place to watch the football game, and for its Quiz Evenings.
