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.
Scenically set amongst nature, this property is within 1 km of Svolvær town centre and Svolværgeita Mountain. It offers free Wi-Fi and modern accommodation with well-equipped kitchens. A flat-screen TV with cable channels is provided at Svinøya Rorbuer, as well as tea/coffee facilities, a fridge and stove with oven. Some of the cottages and apartments also include a fireplace, balcony and private sauna. Local fish specialities are served in the on-site Børsen Spiseri restaurant. Guests can also enjoy Svinøya’s bar and terrace, as well as the Gunnar Berg Art Gallery, located on the property grounds. Northern Light excursions, as well as sea safaris with RIB boats to Troll Fjord, 30 minutes away, can be arranged on site. Other popular activities include hiking, fishing and cycling.
