– Discover Norway’s majestic Lofoten with Svinøya Rorbuer as your base –
With the big sea on one side, and dramatic mountains on the other. The Svinøya Rorbuer cabins are idyllically situated among fish landing stations, wharfs, wooden fish racks, and old local buildings. A vibrant fishing village only 15 minutes walk from Svolvær town.
At Svinøya you can stay in our original rorbu cabins while exploring the unique Lofoten Islands. The rorbu cabins are idyllically located between the fish landing station, quayside buildings, fish racks, and old local buildings. We have the open ocean on one side, and the spectacular Lofoten mountains on the other. A vibrant fishing village in the town of Svolvær.
The cabins have from one to three twin bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and one or more bathrooms with shower and WC. Considerable emphasis has been invested in maintaining the authenticity of the cabins. Traditional craftsmanship and timber are kept to give a feeling of how the “rorbu life” was for the fishermen back in the days of ores and sails.
