Our rorbu is built around 1890, but later refurbished. The old charm is still here, as well as the tiny beds under the ceiling where the fishermen slept. The refurbished bedrooms however, have new comfortable double beds and the bathroom is adapted to modern day standards.

In order to keep the original feel of the rorbu, the cabin does not have a lot of extra amenities as you might excpect in modern homes. However, the cabin has cooking facilities for 6 people, and has a fridge with a small freezer as well as two electrical burners. The beds are brand new and with comfortable mattresses. The bathroom has a shower and a water closet and was refurbished around 1990.

Visiting Lofoten was for a long-time just an aspiration for us, and we have found Tind as a perfect base for making it real: it's a calmer place than Reine or Å, and conveniently located for walking, trekking in the mountains, or as a base for travelling by car around Moskenessoya and Flakstadoya. Norway is terribly expensive, but we think... more
