Description

Svinøya Rorbuer is centrally situated in Svolvær harbour. The island is accassible by a bridge and is within easy walking distance of the city centre.

All of our 30 original and more recently built rorbu cabins are of high standard. Each cabin has one to three double bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen cum lounge, and a modern bathroom with shower and toilet. Considerable emphasis has been placed on maintaining the authenticity of the rorbu cabins. The timber and time-honoured craftmanship have been preserved to convey the feeling of what a rorbu cabin was like in the old days, when the fishermen harvested the seas of Lofoten with the help of oar and sail.

The rorbu cabins are idyllically located between the fish landing station, quayside buildings, fish racks and other traditional, local buildings. Here, you have the sea on one side, and the spectacular Lofoten mountains on the other.

The fisheries are still of primary importance to the region, and the Lofoten Cod Fishery has always formed the basis of existence for the people here. Having the opportunity of observing these activities at close quarters in Svinøya, is an experience in its own right. We offer you a comfortable stay, with the Lofoten adventures on your doorstep!

30 original or recently built "rorbu" cabins of high standard.
106 beds. Conference rooms to seat 100 persons. Børsen Spiseri Restaurant, for those who enjoy good food. The Gunnar Berg (1863-1893) Gallery. Old-fashioned general store from 1828, still intact.
