Where to stay in the Realm of Hamsun

A wide range of accommodation options are available in the Realm of Hamsun, everything from excellent hotels to idyllic camp sites and a lighthouse.

Fishermen's cabins

Originally built as accommodation for visiting fishermen during the fisheries of Lofoten, fishermen's cabins, or "rorbus" as they are known in Norway, are today immensely popular both amongst Norwegian and foreign holidaymakers. You are advised to book well in advance, especially if you are coming to the Realm of Hamsun in July and August.

Tranøy Lighthouse

Find tranquillity at Tranøy Lighthouse. Look across the Vestfjord towards the Lofoten Islands, hear the reawakening of the birds, and feel the peace and quiet.

Wharf houses

Traditionally the wharf houses had production and storage areas on the ground floor, whilst the upper floors were used as lodgings for the fishermen. Many of the wharf houses have now been renovated and are used as accommodation for tourists.

They normally have a common living room, kitchen and sanitary facilities. In some wharf houses, visitors share kitchens and common rooms.

Today, the term wharf house ("sjøhus") is also used to describe accommodation units that may be quite new. What they have in common with the older ones, is the fact that they are close to the sea and often have architectural features that reflect former building traditions.
