We stayed here in January 19th-22nd and arrived late. Lateness due to late flights, broken flights and more delayed flights from Oslo and Bodo - this meant we were approximately 5 hours late arriving - the reception was closed, but no problems, we were still met. A taxi was arranged to collect us from the airport and then we collected... More

We got to stay in Cabin 33, which is an authentic old fishermen's home with two floors, with period decorations. Despite the old-fashioned theme, the bath is modern and good, there is a flatscreen TV with lots of channel potions and free wifi is provided in the cabin. There is also a full kitchen, but we did not self-cater. The... More

This place was great, I only wish we could have stayed longer! Easily accessible location, staff were willing to accommodate our bizarre arrival and departure times, and the cottages were very cozy. Would love to come back someday.

We stayed over Christmas, entering the Lofoten with rain. In the afternoon it started snowing, which gave everything an even greater look. Nice, large cottage (no. 17), well furnished. Very friendly owners. Even though everything is closed with Christmas (apart from one ini market that is closed on 25th, but open on the 26th), there still is enough to see... More

The cabin is very big and fully-equipped with all basic amenities. Even though it is freezing outside, the cabin is very warm and you don't have to go outside to enjoy the view of the fjord. Definitely a charming place to stay at Lofoten. You definitely need a car if you're staying at Svinoya Rorbuer as it is located on... More

We stayed there during a major storm and enjoyed feeling safe and warm inside. The two bedroom cottages have an en suite in each bedroom which we loved. Svinoya is quite a walk from the town centre, we hired a car to explore further afield but taxis are prompt and fairly cheap. The fish restaurant that is in the reception... More

This is a great place to stay. Its removed enough from the activities of Svolvaer, yet connected to it by a short bridge. Most, if not all rorbuer are on the water. You pick your keys up at the reception if its open, otherwise the Borsen Spiseri restaurant that belongs to the same management will have it for you. The... More
