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. <BR><BR>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.<BR><BR>

Wonderfull cabin with just a few steps to the ocean and some hundred meters to trails leading to outstanding walks up some of Lofoten most breathtaking peaks. I really recommend this stay!

Management response:

Hi Palmlaksen! We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our cabin. Unfortunately, there is no good places for white water kayaking in the immediate surroundings, but plenty of sea - kayaking opportunities and most other imaginable activities. Thanks for visiting. Regards Gunnar

The booking process and the communication with the owner were very straightforward. The cabin was spacious for two people, had everything we needed and was very comfortable and warm. We loved the location within easy walking distance of A, and very quiet even during high season. The amazing variety of wild flowers in the area was a highlight for us...
