Everything you need to know about Lofoten:

The rorbu cabins “Vågar” and “Lofotodden” each have a soapstone fireplace on the ground floor. Firewood must be ordered in advance. The cabins face the south-west and the area is very sunny when the weather is fine in Lofoten. Spacious quayside patio secured with railings and equipped with outdoor furniture.

The rorbu cabins are located in private grounds in a quiet area with no unnecessary traffic since we only take advance bookings.

Car park right outside the cabins. No smoking in the cabins, no dogs allowed.

Walking distance (6-7 mins.) to Kabelvåg town centre where you will find a supermarket, post office, small boutiques and specialist shops, a kiosk, boat hire service, bicycle hire and the Prestængbrygga – a pub with a pleasant atmosphere and outdoor service that also serves lunches and dinners every day.

Storvågan, with the Gallery Espolin, the Lofoten Museum and the Lofoten Aquarium, is a 10-15 minute walk away.
