With an extra night in Svolvær you have the possibility of another whale safari if you wish, or the chance to visit art galleries and picturesque fishing villages. ther activities available include deep sea rafting on Sunday mornings. Viking banquets, as featured in our New Year package, are also available on alternate Fridays during the season. Further details available on request. Killer Whale Safaris from Lofoten are operated with a comfortable well-equipped boat, experienced crew and knowledgeable guide. Early in the season it may be necessary to depart from further west in the Lofoten Islands (e.g. Ballstad, Nusfjord or Reine) as the whales may be further out in the fjord. This will involve a car or coach journey of a maximum 11⁄2 hours, at an extra cost of about £5 pp payable locally. This would however allow you to enjoy more of the stunning Lofoten scenery.
Svinøya Rorbuer, Svolvær
Few places capture the spirit of the Lofoten Islands as conveniently or comfortably as Svinøya. On a small island, linked to the mainland with an impressive bridge, these rorbuer, or fishermens cabins, are within 15 minutes walk of the centre of Svolvær. Svinøya dates back to 1828, when the rorbuer offered shelter to the fishermen who came from far and wide for the cod fishing season. The old wharf has been converted to a highly atmospheric bar and high-quality restaurant. Some of the cabins are beautifully restored originals, others are more recently built in traditional style. They offer one, two or three bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge with TV, and a modern bathroom with shower/wc.
