Svinøya Rorbuer

Top choice holiday park in Svolvær
Image by

Across a bridge on the islet of Svinøya, site of Svolvær's first settlement, the 38 rorbuer (fisher's cabins) on offer here are some of the best in Lofoten. There's a mixture of traditional and contemporary cabins, all of them cosy and comfortable. Reception is a veritable museum – a restored and restocked general store built in 1828, which was Svolvær's first shop.
