Dønna Rorbuer Bøteriet, situated on the quay in beautiful surroundings on the island of Dønna, offers good dining in charming surroundings, accommodation and guided boat trips.
Here you will find comfortable accommodation, as well as good food and refreshments. You can sign up for a boat trip in a traditional Nordland boat, rent your own boat and go fishing, or go kayaking. Right outside the door are several hiking trails. If you stay here, you’ll be quite near Dønna’s best-known attractions.
For instance, on the other side of the bay is the tiny chocolate factory, Heidis Sjokoladedrøm. Also nearby is Dønnes Gård, an old vicarage. Next to it is a beautiful medieval church and a cultural path that leads up to Dønnesfjellet. In the other direction, at Glein, is an unusual attraction: the largest marble phallus in Northern Europe.
A guided boat trip in a traditional Nordland boat will take you to the shops of Herøy, or on an evening trip out on the surrounding seas.
A charming restaurant
In Bøteriet Restaurant, you can dine well in maritime surroundings where the islanders used to mend fishing nets. The menu features seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. All the fish is freshly caught in the waters near Dønna, and many of the other ingredients are local. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience, with old woodwork that is still intact and rustic objects that highlight Dønna’s maritime heritage. One major change is the large windows now facing the sea.
A good night’s sleep
The complex has a separate building with four apartments, each with two bedrooms and four beds, in addition to a sofa-bed. Each apartment is around 50 m2 (540 square feet).
Above the restaurant are two nice apartments, each with two bedrooms and four beds. One of the apartments has an alcove with an extra bed. There are also rooms with a family bed.
