About Svanøy

Svanøy has a long and multi-faceted history. In previous centuries, the island was the most important centre in the region, with a high level of export and shipping activity.  The island is home to Svanøy Mansion, which was both a nobleman's dwelling and an episcopal residence. Today, about 70 people live on the island, and Svanøy is widely known for its high-quality salmon and venison. Norsk Hjortesenter – the Norwegian Deer Centre – on the island is a national centre of expertise on wild and farmed deer, and lets you experience the deer at close quarters.
