    Genuine rorbuer


    A rorbu was once a domicile for fisher folk [men - not a sexist term but a matter of fact!] during the season. They have been converted into tourist accommodation. In much of Lofoten there are 'rorbuer' built specifically for the latter purpose but the ones here were the genuine article. The reception area, which is like a living museum, has photos showing how it once was.

    The rorbu is not a particularly cheap option - comparable with 3/4 star hotels but gives a special and more authentic air to a holiday in these parts. There is a restaurant [separate tip] which supplies breakfasts to take back to the rorbu - and, believe me, they are big enough to make a substantial part of your lunch as well. If you prefer, you can self cater in the rorbu.
    Suberb scenery and great interest in the immediate area.

    Highly recommended.

    Unique Quality: See above - stunning scenery and very symptomatic of a dying way of life.

    Directions: See travelfrosch's Svolvær page, where there is a tip on walking to Svinøya
