When we arrived, we were placed in a newly-constructed condo unit that is a part of a different property, altho we had reserved a rorbu/cabin. After returning to the reception building and a bit of a discussion, we were told that there had been a fire and the smaller cabins were unavailable. While the condo was definitely larger/nicer, it isn't...

Although I thought I was getting a cabin I got a condo unit instead. It was still a great space (suite 201) for 2 people. Very quiet. Staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly however staff at restaurant could put a smile. The unit provided great views and was equipped with all you needed. Included breakfast was...

Pretty rorbuer which was spacious. They have a kitchen and TV which helps during long nights in the winter. It is not near the center of town but wasn't much of a problem as we had a car. We had to park near the reception as there was no lots near our cabins; managed to catch some northern lights here...

The Svinoya Rorbuer is a very cute spot on the water. The view from the room was fantastic. A couple of gripes. We arrived in a light rain/snow and were given less than perfect directions to get to the suites. (they are about 200 meters from the check in spot). We wandered in the snow with our luggage for 30...

Stayed twice at Svinoya Rorbuer. Traditional Rorbuers small but very nicely update, very clean and great views. Really enjoyed our stay, you can walk into town but it is a bit a walk over a bridge with no sidewalk. It is a quick walk to the sea wall to watch amazing sunsets and sunrises. Breakfast was really good but not...

Was there a few weeks ago and was so lucky to be upgraded to one of the massive suites. The owner was very smily and took care of everything. Staying at Hattvika is always a pleasure and I can't wait to go back next month already.

We were a group of 9 on a guided backcountry skiing trip. The cabins are large enough (we had 2 for us 9). There is a kitchen with stove and oven, as well as a water heater and a big fridge in every cabin. Two living rooms and each cabin is equipped with a sauna which heats up quite quickly....

We stayed 5 nights in a 2 bedroom cabin and it was very pleasant. Quite a bit smaller than what we were expecting (especially the bedrooms, nowhere near as large as they appear in the pictures), but comfortable. We were lucky to get one right on the water so the view in the morning and evening was just lovely. The...
