Originally built as accommodation for visiting fishermen during the fisheries of Lofoten, rorbu cabins are today immensly popular amongst both Norwegian and foreign visitors. You are advised to book well in advance, especially if you are coming to Norway in July and August.
Spending your holiday at a rorbu, as it is called in Norwegian, gives you the experience of staying in quaint little fishing towns and villages. There are plenty of opportunities to go fishing - either on your own or as part of a crew on board the local fishingboat.
Most rorbu cabins serve as self-service accommodation with a living room and kitchen in one, a bathroom with shower, and at least one bedroom. A lot of the rorbu cabins have extra insulation, enabling them to offer year-round accommodation.
Standards and sizes vary a great deal, as some rorbu cabins are very old and some brand new. If you are prepared to pay a little extra you can get a rorbu with all the modern facilities and even an outside hot tub.
A two-bedroom cabin costs from NOK 600 per night. At most places you pay per cabin, not per person. Most often you must pay extra for bed clothes and towels.

Along the Norwegian coast, particularly in Trøndelag and Nordland, rorbu cabins have been restored and turned into modern accommodation.
