The journey to Træna begins with the purchase of your festival pass. Træna is an archipelago, so pretty much the only way to get here is by boat. If you’re not a local, and are unfamiliar with local systems, the journey can be a logistical challenge. Fortunately, that's half the fun, and the festival will make it as easy for you as possible: there are plenty of routes leading to Træna, and this year we’ll offer a ‘Match Bus To Boat’ travel guarantee! Welcome to the 2018 Træna Festival!
