You can stay at hotels all over the world. Why not try something different? In Lofoten Islands we can offer something quite unique: staying overnight in a rorbu. A rorbu is a small cabin, traditionally built on the shore, often on poles sticking out in the sea. The first rorbu was built in Lofoten in the 12th century for visiting fishermen during the winter cod season. Today the rorbus are rented out for visitors of all kinds and they vary in shape, size and standard.
Rorbu 13 in Tind is our very own rorbu, which we rent out during the Summer season. In our attempt to create an authentic atmosphere we have furbished the rorbu in a traditional style, but with modern comfort (no TV or pone). The cabin has two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower/WC and a living room with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area.
No meals are included during your stay at the rorbu, but you can either prepare your own meals in the rorbu, or you can go to one of the nearby restaurants. I.e. the restaurant by Å Rorbuer or the Maren Anna seafood restaurant.
Bed linen and final cleaning is included in the price.
Comment from Trude: In June 2011 I spend one week at Rorbu 13, and to wake up every morning to the tranquility and spectacular views of Lofoten is an amazing experience.Distances:
Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.
Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
