30 cabins with two bedrooms in each cabin

There is something about the smell of salt water in the morning, clear blue air and the opportunity to make your own cup of coffee in your own kitchen before breakfast, push open the patio door, and put your bare feet on a morning-warm wooden jetty. A morning in Rorbua before the work conference, the holiday or a big event.

Lofoten Loft Bar

Thursday – Saturday 19.00-23.00

In our Lofoten Loft Bar, you are welcome for a drink after dinner or to simply enjoy the view of the ocean with a glass in hand. We serve beer, wine and spirits and are proud to be able to present one of the world’s largest collections of aquavit – approx. 300 different varieties! Choose your samples from the collection or try our aquavit board with our recommendations. We also serve self-composed aquavit-based cocktails.

Lofoten Spa

Become part of the northern Norwegian nature in our outdoor heated hot tubs. Here you can sit back and enjoy all the beauty around you; midnight sun in summer or real starry skies and the northern lights dancing around you from autumn to spring. The sauna has large windows facing mighty mountains and the beautiful Vestfjord. You are welcome to take a bath in the crystal clear sea water directly from the floating jetty in both summer and winter. Lofotspa is perfect after the ski trip, the mountain trip or before a tasty meal in our great restaurant.

Northern lights camera

Northern Norway is one of the areas on the planet that lies directly below the northern lights oval, and thus has the most northern lights in the world. Northern Norway is also easy to travel to, has good infrastructure and the mildest climate in the Arctic.

In Florence there are maps of the inhabited world of the Middle Ages. At the very top of the map is Vågar – the world’s northernmost city at the time. “From here came the cod kalled Skrei”

New Year’s sustainability work

Nyvågar is Environmental Lighthouse certified and we continuously work towards a more sustainable way of operating. At the beginning of 2021, we went through a recertification and evaluated measures and targets. We want to be clear and inform about our work and want to communicate continuously about processes and measures. We don’t just want committed employees, but also committed guests. Sustainability work must run as a common thread throughout the entire business.
