FISHERMEN´S CABINS (RORBU)

In the Lofoten islands in northern Norway, you can rent a traditional former fisherman´s cabin, called a "Rorbu". The fishermen used to come to Lofoten from other parts of the coast for the winter cod fishing season from January to April, and would make these cabins their temporary homes for the duration. Most have been modernised, and a number of them have their own shower and toilet. Nowadays you will also find newly built fishermen´s cabins too.

Although most "Rorbu´s" are in the Lofoten islands, you can rent these cabins all along the coast of Norway from north to south. What´s important is that the cabin is by the sea shore with excellentfishing! The local regional tourist boards will supply you with further information.

WELCOME TO NORWAY



Norway is one of the most exciting and beautiful countries you can imagine.

How about hiking on the magnificent upland plateaus, boating on placid mountain lakes or on the sea?

You can try your luck at fishing in numerous rivers, lakes and fjords. The possibilities are countless.

The camp sites are child-friendly and many have activities, excursions and so on to offer which can help to provide an active holiday full of experiences.

Many camp sites also have high-quality huts to let.

In Norway, you will also find facilities where you can empty your toilets, i.e. the toilets in your caravan or camper. These are signposted along the road.

Norway has the largest remaining areas of wilderness and open countryside in Europe. You may walk whereever you like in the open countryside, but you must respect it and must not be a nuisance to landowners or other users of the area.

You may also park beside the road as long as you do not hinder other traffic. You must, however, ensure that your parking does not conflict with local restrictions or with signs.

Take care of the countryside and help us to ensure that future generations can enjoy clean Norwegian nature.
