We spent six nights in the Lofoten Islands, the first three here...significantly different experiences. We would not return to the other one (Eliassen Rorbuer Drift AS in Reine...check my review of it for more). The Nyvagar was outstanding. The fisherman cabin was what we expected...not at all elegant or upscale but what fisherman cabin is. But very clean. The beds... More

Enjoyed our recent stay here. This rorbu was well located in the small fishing town, Kabelvag. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin which was spacious, clean and cosy. It is located along a small fjord with beautiful mountain views. The bed was comfortable and the area was very quiet. Breakfast was a well appointed buffet that helped to nourish... More

After visiting Lofoten several times, I can with confidence say this is the best place to stay. You will get that genuine experience in the middle of the wild and spectacular nature, and at the edge of the mighty ocean. Still you are only a short walk away from the idyllically Kabelvåg village square. The food is of the highest... More

Finally back in the Northern parts of Norway, my friend and I chose this location to rest bicycle feet, and rejoice in the outstanding scenery. Needless to say, the location had everything you could possible want in terms of out of this world surroundings. The high service level was on the other hand so much more than we anticipated. The...

We stayed three nights at this rorbu. Our rorbu was perfect for us. It is two stories with two bedrooms up, two single beds in each. The first floor has a sitting area, kitchen table and small kitchen area. The bathroom is modern and well kept. The grounds include a board walk, deck and dock areas. It is on the... More

We were looking for a Rorbu in the middle of the Lofoten Islands and this filled our needs perfectly. The 2 story cottage "Rorbu" had a beautiful view overlooking water. We also found that this location worked very well for us since we had a car and used it to visit other areas in the islands. The Rorbu was simple,... More

We arranged our wedding at nyvågar. Little information regarding practical details was given to the couples in the planning phase, so we had to follow up everything by phone. The location was beautiful and the guests could enjoy the view of the lofoten mountains and sea from the brew outside. The food was extraordinary good. The waiters, however, were not... More

The rorbuer are located on the water at the end of a small fjord, away from roads, in a idyllic and peaceful landscape, the only sounds coming from seagulls and other birds. The rorbu where I stayed had a hall, a large living room with confortable sofa and armchairs, and a large screen tv set, a fully equipped kitchen, a... More

We had 5 days in Lofoten Islands (fantastic landscapes and atmosphere!) and we stayed in two rorbuer villages (at Storvagen and at Nusfjord). The robuer we had were very comfortable: there are in reality a large cabin with a living room + fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a hall and two bedrooms upstairs, You can so make your...
