Nothing we can add to all the other wonderful reviews! This was our second visit here and as though we had never been away. It was so easy, and fun, to get involved in the local activities as we were there for Reginedagen again. The essence of the place is the hostess, Lone Lanmark, who brings the whole experience to...

If you are planning a round trip to the northern part of Norway, you should stay some days at Skagakaia. The owner Lone Lamark is a perfect hostess who takes really care of her gusts.

We stayed one night here during a fly-drive tour of the Lofoten Islands. The staff were welcoming and friendly and our room was small but comfortable. The receptionist apologised that we had twin beds (we'd expressed a preference for a double), but we had the only available room. The bathroom was shared rather than en-suite, but that wasn't an issue... More

A really charming place, beautiful view! Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed taking our breakfast with us out on the pier every morning! The kitchen downstairs was very convenient. I tried fishing off the pier and took long walks in the area.

This place is absolutely wonderful. It is so quiet that you can hear your thoughts. Vesterålen must be one of the most, by humans, untouched areas in the world. We enjoyed every moment we spent here, in all 3 days and nights. The restaurant rum by Skagerkaia is excellent, serving freshly caught fish and a whale species that is sustainable.... More

We were so lucky that our Norwegian friends were able to share this amazing place to stay. The meals were so delicious they included local fish expertly cooked and superb service making us feel so welcome and nurtured. The bread, cakes and puddings were so delicious that I could have spent more than 2 days here - better to stay... More

We spent a wonderful week in Skagakaia cycling, trekking, whale-watching, boating, island-hopping and fishing, and all of that can be achieved from the magical base of Skagakaia. We had a fantastic en-suite bedroom overlooking the bay (visited by the Queen of Norway, no less, two days earlier). The rooms are comfortable and you find peace and tranquillity as you watch...

We stayed at Skagakaia for a week and are very happy to have found this place on Vesterålen. Lone Lamark makes a significant effort to let you experience a warm and friendly place by keepig the charme of the old days when the main building was home to the shipping masters of Bø - her ancestors.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Authentic, charming and good quality guesthouse in the beautiful archipelago of the Lofoten & Vesteralen Isles in North Norway. At Skagakaia you live straight at the quai, in a traditional old dock house or "rorbu". Here at the quay, you can relax in a deck chair to the most beautiful ocean view, or maybe start your day with a refreshing morning dive or by testing your fishing luck right from your doorstep. Known for its good atmosphere and excellent food, - traditional and local - the restaurant at Skagakaia have both local and house guests. Sometimes we invite to small concerts, and some of the best moments have been when our gusts spontaneously have brought their violin or borrowed our guitar. The local surroundings offers many beautiful hiking routes. We have bicycles for hire and our rowing boats are free to use for our guests. As hostess at Skagakaia I am happy to share my grandparents' place with you, and maybe to show you around and tell you about all the nice places and things to do. We have no TV, but WIFI is free. ... more   less
