Around 100,000 pairs of puffins nest here, but also gannets, grebes and cormorants are established with large populations during the breeding season.


The natural areas at Runde are vulnerable, important and interesting for research. Runde is also called "Treasure Island", after gold finds from the sunken Dutch ship "Ankerendam" from 1725.

The capacity is 25 times greater than the village's population and is frequently visited by both local and national heroes such as Magne Furuholmen and Kjell Inge Røkke.


Trandal has no road connection to the outside world, and communication must therefore take place by sea by ferry or boat. Nevertheless, both concerts and festivals are often arranged at Trandal, such as Country Festival and Trandalblues.
