Beiarn is a municipality in northern Norway.

The oldest traces of settlement date from 1500 BC At that time, grain was grown, and pets were held. Agriculture remained the most important economic factor today. In the Middle Ages disappeared many families without that one has more accurate news about it. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the population increased again, first in the coastal region, and later in the higher valleys. In the 19th century people moved from Rana about the Saltfjell into Beiarntal. This development also led to more contact with the outside and -coming trade. As long as the sea was the main route of the region, was Beiarn with other coastal towns par. After the Second World War, but the land routes were expanded, and Beiarn was cut off from traffic. It had no road link, and the fjord was frozen in the winter. It was only in the 60s of the 20th century, Bavaria was awarded a connection to the road network. Thus, the development Beiarns was restricted in many ways, and residents from wandering. But agriculture was maintained.

Today there is a joinery operation located there, which produces windows and doors, and a textile company with our own collection. It is home to a larger machine shop. 14 % of its territory is timberland. Lately, also tourism revenues begin to be felt.

Today Beiarn benefited from the fact that nature has remained largely intact by these circumstances.
