A visit to the Lofoten Islands promises epic landscapes, unbeatable outdoor adventures and delicious fresh seafood and the Nyvagar Rorbuhotel is perfectly placed to take advantage of all the island has to offer. The property is made up of 30 authentic fisherman’s houses, the distinctive red wood cabins atop a raised boardwalk with spectacular panoramic sea views. Whilst simple in style, the property is typical of the accommodation on the Lofoten Islands and offers a unique Norwegian experience, drawing on its strong fishing village heritage.
The split level cabins are simply furnished yet comfortable and all have a balcony or terrace from which to sit back and take in the breathtaking surrounding landscape and sense of calm, watching the plentiful bird life out to sea. The atmosphere is a cosy 'home from home' feel, there’s a welcoming lounge and traditional restaurant and the food here a standout feature owing to its focus on fresh local ingredients. Lofoten lamb, freshly caught halibut, cod and Arctic char from the Vestfjorden or the typical dried fish are specialties of the house.
Endless summer days make for outdoor exploration and adventure; cruising the narrow fjords, catching sight of sea eagles, whales and puffins for that unique photo opportunity, hiking through magnificent mountain ranges or trying your own hand at fishing the rich clear waters all around. Despite the Arctic winter temperatures, the sea here does not freeze and year round activities can be enjoyed and tailored by our Travel Consultants to suit your own tastes and interests.
Accommodation at the Nyvagar Rorbuhotel consists of traditional fishing huts with a duplex layout. The cabins each have two bedrooms and a living area and many offer fantastic sea and mountain views.
The property offers a rustic style restaurant serving fresh local cuisine including Arctic char, halibut and the famous fresh Lofoten cod. The small bar area has a fireplace where you can cosy up after an invigorating day exploring the surrounding landscape.

When to go
The Lofoten Islands are a stunning year round destination with differing highlights depending on the time of year.
January and February, although still cold and with long nights, are the best months for spotting humpback whales. During March and April spring starts to arrive and the temperature increase, this is a delightful time to visit as the mountains are often still snow capped whilst days are longer. The summer months of May to August bring long daylight hours and great flora and fauna. This is the best time for families to travel for a wide choice of activities.
September to November have some great autumn colors but can be rainy so offer a different experience of the islands. December sees very minimal daylight hours and therefore wouldn't be the strongest time to visit.
