These historic red-sided cabins are secluded and tranquil, offering the most authentic and atmospheric way to stay on the island of Flakstadøy. Many Norwegian families from the south come here for summer holidays, booking a cabin for a week or more, but you can also stay overnight. Outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, and hiking fill one's agenda during the day. Rowboats come with the price of the room, and the helpful staff will also rent you motorboats if you'd like to fish Lofoten waters. The original fishermen's cabins were built around 1900 but have since been modernized. They are constructed of timbers, and the wooden floors are original, the furnishings a mixture of antique and modern. In summer, there is also a restaurant, serving mainly seafood. In winter, bookings are made by the Rica Hotel in Svolvær (tel. 76-07-22-22; www.rica.no).
