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.
