Lonely Planet review
Across a bridge on the islet of Svinøya, site of Svolvær's first settlement, are several cabins, some historic, most contemporary, and all cosy and comfortable. Reception is a veritable museum, a restored and restocked krambua (general store), constructed in 1828, which was Svolvær's first shop. They've properties all over the area and they're some of the best rorbuer in Lofoten.
Our independent authors have visited Svinøya Rorbuer and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Svolvær.
