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.
Selvær is an authentic fishing community with a proud heritage. Generations of islanders and a great variety of birds have found their livelihood here; eagles and eider ducks are just two of the more than 200 bird species you may encounter as you explore the archipelago.
If you want to try your luck fishing, we can almost guarantee a good catch, regardless of the time of year you visit. You can fish from the quay or shore, or rent a boat and head for deeper water. Some of Norway’s best fishing spots are found in the waters near Myken. The island of Selvær has a grocery store and a small self-service café.
Træna Arctic Fishing offers five modern, fully equipped apartments right on the quay. Each apartment is 75–85 m2, has three bedrooms and comfortably accommodates people. Guests have access to free wi-fi and a Bluetooth sound system.
You can rent a sturdy boat that is well suited to deep-sea fishing. The 20–24 foot aluminium boats are equipped with a hefty 90–150 horsepower engine.
If you’re ready for something far off the beaten track, the friendly islanders of Selvær are eager to give you a truly memorable holiday experience!
