Tranøya is a small island on the south coast of Senja. The island has no car traffic, and the only motorized vehicle is the tractor on the farm. Tranøya is the place to enjoy the peace and quiet.
On the island there is beautiful nature and bustling wildlife. You will experience good hiking opportunities, both along well-trodden paths or in the countryside. You can also meet a flock of spelled sheep, which roam freely on the island and make sure to keep the cultural landscape alive.
We pick you up at the quay at Refsnes and shuttle you over to Tranøya by boat. The boat trip takes about 5 minutes and we have all the equipment needed for the crossing. Maybe we see eagles and other seabirds and animals during the crossing. On the island we follow the road on foot from the quay and up to the farm, the trip takes about 5 minutes. If you need extra luggage handling, just let us know.
Between forest and fields is Tranøy farm. The main house on the farm is Prestegården from 1856, which is today used as a guest house. In addition, we rent out rooms in Bryggerhuset from the year 1900. At the rectory, Tranøy church from 1773 reigns, which has been a historic meeting point for a number of years. The farm consists of several other houses, such as the barn, Gammelgården and Drengestua m.m.
Our guests spend the night in the new Prestegården, which sleeps 10 people. The rectory has a common area on the ground floor, with a lounge and two living rooms with long tables for food. In Bryggerhuset we have 2 double rooms with shared bathroom. All bedrooms have rural views.
The kitchen is staffed from morning to evening and traditional Norwegian food and vegetarian are prepared as desired.
