Covid 19 - Corona - How we respond

At Svinøya Rorbuer, we take the advice of NIPH and take COVID-19 seriously so that our guests will feel safe during their holiday in the Lofoten Islands.

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health says that traveling to your cabins poses less risk of spreading infection because you are usually there with family or friends you are already in contact with at home. This is also the case when booking a stay at Svinøya Rorbuer. All our units have the possibility of self-catering. Check-in can be done through our reception, or we can arrange for you to collect your key from a key box.

All surfaces in our cabins are being extensively deep cleaned and we have equipped all units with hand sanitizer. Outdoor parking is available close to the cabins so you can easily and safely move between your accommodation and your car.

In our restaurant, Børsen Spiseri, we provide a safe enviroment for all our guests.

The reception will have reduced opening hours.
