Eliassen Rorbuer cabins are located in a tiny fishing village on Hamnøy Island in Lofoten. The surrounding area has had a relationship with cod fishing for over a thousand years. In local pubs, all stories are of fishing adventures from past and present. Spectacular nature, silence, midnight sun, northern light, storm, breathtaking sea and mountain view, fishing boats and fishermen’s cabins – the genuine Lofoten atmosphere is right here.
Few places come with such spectacular views of the Hamnøy harbour, Reinefjord, and the surrounding mountains.

You can also grow your cultural capital:
The Elijazzen Festival is organised every spring at Eliassen Rorbuer. It has hosted the likes of Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet from Poland.
The Cellolyd Festival is a smaller festival taking place in Reine at the beginning of August each year. In addition to classical and contemporary concerts, they also work together with a variety of vocalists. These vocalists, on this occasion, replace their own bands with the festival ensemble (consisting solely of cellists). At the “cello pub” you will hear everything from hip-hop to dance music, all played on cellos.
Also in Reine, this festival takes place every June at the Reine Culture Centre. Throughout the year, the centre is home to a collection of works by artist Eva Harr, and multimedia show by author and photographer Frank A Jenssen. You’ll also want to check out the new design and souvenir outlet opened by Maria Krüger Enge Kirkesæther and Karl Henrik Kirkesæther.
