SVINØYA RORBUER - Your base for good meetings and experiences in Lofoten
If you want to live central and eat well in a vibrant and historic fishing village in the town of Svolvær, we are a natural partner to create the right framework for your next meeting in Lofoten.
On Svinøya we have received visiting guests since we were granted an inn grant in 1831.
With us you live and sleep well in our comfortable Fishermen's cabins, Historic Houses, Fishermen's suites or you can live like real Nessekonger in the exclusive Væreiergården. We have a total of 125 bedrooms with 244 beds.
In Lofoten's best preserved Handelsbrygge from 1828, you will find our reception, an original Krambu, which was Svolvær's first shop. Here your group will be well received and welcomed with our story. In the same pier you will also find one of Lofoten's most renowned restaurants, Børsen Spiseri. Here we create good local dining experiences in a unique setting for our guests. The restaurant has a capacity for up to 250 people. At our outdoor restaurant with a view over Svolvær harbor and Svolværgeita, we have room for 120 people. When the sun shines in Svolvær, this is exactly where it shines the longest. Right outside our restaurant you will also find our Fjord Sauna which is located outside on a large floating jetty. It is open every day all year round for drop in or you can reserve the entire sauna for your group. There is room for 20 people in the sauna at a private event.
We offer comfortable and well-equipped meeting room facilities with a capacity of up to 150 people. You can choose between working in unique artistic surroundings in Galleri Gunnar Berg, or in rustic surroundings at Tørrfiskloftet - in the middle of vibrant northern Norwegian coastal culture. We also have group rooms available.
