Accommodation in Lofoten is available at hotels, camp sites, youth hostels, cabins, quayside buildings ("sjøhus"), guesthouses, bed & breakfasts and various other types of rooms and apartments.
Along the coast of Finnmark you will find cosy fishermen’s cabins. These cabins originally provided simple overnight accommodation for fishermen. Today they are available in all categories, from low to very high standard.
In the fishing villages you will find large buildings originally designed to accommodate the landing of the fishermen's catch. These wharf buildings are often two to four storeys high and also include room for lodgings.
Since many of these lodgings have been used by fishermen, they are also often referred to as fishermen's cabins ("rorbuer"). In order to distinguish this type of accommodation from the traditional, fishermen's cabins, the term "sjøhus" (sea house) is often used. In some of these "sjøhus", guests may share a number of facilities such as kitchen, bathroom and living room.
