A place with history

Eliassen Rorbuer is a holiday resort with fishermen’s cabins, enjoying the longest tradition in the tourist industry in Lofoten. It is situated on the tiny island of Hamnøy in wild and beautiful Western Lofoten, in the Moskenes municipality.

We offer accommodation in traditional fishermen’s cabins (rorbuer), once used by fishermen from all over Norway as accommodation during the world’s biggest annual cod fishing event. Currently the Lofoten Islands are mainly associated with fishing, which takes place from January to April, alongside the entire archipelago.

Most of the cabins have been fully renovated and adjusted to the needs of numerous tourists coming from all over the world to visit Lofoten. The genuine character and décor of the cabins remind visitors of their original use. They feature one or two bedrooms with new furnishing, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and veranda. Many of the cabins have breathtaking views of the spectacular fiord of Reinefjord, steep mountains and the picturesque harbour of Hamnøy.
