The staff here are very friendly and helpful. For those who do not know, a Rorbuer pronounced something like "rrrrbrrr" by the Norwegians, is a converted fishing cabin made into tourist accommodation. Usually painted red, these rorbuers are immaculate cabins with baths and heated floors and are extremely comfortable. Plus, you are amongst the most stunning scenery in Lofoten, if... More

This is my second time staying in Reine Rorbuer and I enjoyed every moment of my stay there! The cabin is very cosy and lovely. It feels like home, where we can relax, laze on the sofa, listening to music, enjoying the awesome, dramatic scenery from the living room's window. They even have kitchenette, fully equipped with utensils, plates, ....... More

Lovely grass-roofed wooden cabin in scenic village setting with views of the sea and cliff. It is spacious, outfitted with kitchenette, TV and wi-fi. Friendly receptionist. The climax of our stay was being able to witness the magical Northern Light displays for one and a half hours on 31 Aug, right outside our cabin (2nd room next to the sea).... More

We had a wonderful stay on September 7th, in cabin number 33, "Artur", which faces north to the harbor, and the iconic scenery surrounding you in every direction. The 2 bedroom cabin was very well appointed with a tweed couch & chair, a nice dining table, a kitchenette (no oven in Artur though), and cozy beds with duvets and tweed... More

We had a wonderful rorbu (Oskar) directly on the waterfront, and the view was magnificent, especially during evening (the sun never set down in June, but it's hidden by the high Lofoten peaks, so you get a sort of "sunset" in any case). Everything in the rorbu was perfect. We found the service very professional but a little "c

Lofoten in the end of August could be extremly nice- sun is shining and the northern light playing in the sky at night. The ocean is mirroring the wild mountains. Reine rorbuer is my favourite place to stay in Lofoten, genuine buildings, very nice service and excellent food a well. Marvelous!.

A magnificent three night stay. Everything was fantastic - the view, the rorbuer and particularly the welcome on arrival. The Rorbuer (number 36) was right on the waterfront and had a fantastic view across the harbour. The inside far exceeded our expectation. The authenticity had been carefully retained in the living room with the original wooden walls and vintage furniture.... More

We arrived in the late evening with the ferry from Bodø. Checked in took 3 minutes, and we had a great catfish in the restaurant. Kitchen closed at 10 in the evening, the food was great. We rented at "room", not a "rorbu", but actually the room was built on poles in the sea - and the views in the... More

Just beatiful location. The cabin is really nice. Many oportunities for trekking, fishing and adventure sports nearby, or just enjoy the amazing Lofoten islands. Breakfast at the nearby coffee house was a perfect way to start the day

Reine rorbuer was our final stop after a one week bicycle tour of Lofoten. It proved to be a wonderful two-night stay and a worthy end to our trip. On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Michael - who runs the place - and shown our apartment. This turned out to be a spacious, well equipped and very fresh one... More
