Rustic, beautiful, scenic, quiet and comfortable. The accommodation was very expensive for us, but the rorbuer was clean, furnished in such a way as to evoke a feeling of an old fisherman's cabin - quite a nice kitchen if you wished to self-cater - which would also make it a little cheaper to stay here as we all know it's expensive to travel in Norway.

We spent three lovely nights in our two bedroomed cabin (one with bunk beds) which was just set back one from the water, but being higher than the cabin in the front, we had a lovely view from our cabin and at night the lights were magical across Reinevagen. We had a rustic road that allowed us to access our cabin so that was a little more convenient than having to park in the car park.

For the three nights there no servicing of the apartment as we had in a Svolvaer rorbuer there, but it wasn't an issue, and affords you a bit more privacy should you wish,. However reception is quite a distance away for some cabins. Lighting is not the best to all the cabins - great for viewing the northern lights though - but difficult when walking back from Gammelbua up the roadway to your cabin in the dark, but the isolation and darkness has its advantages.

The rorbuer was central for us to tour the area and soak up the raw beauty and isolation of the area. Loved it immensely and to make it doubly special, we had two nights of high solar activity in this low period and it was the best aurora boealis I have seen to date - we saw it all, clouds of light, arcs, rippling curtain, surging swirls that shot across the sky. Reine is a magical little spot, albeit a little expensive for us.

Highly recommend this collection of fishermen's cabins at the far end of the Lofoten Islands. Amazing scenery all around you to go exploring in. I booked for one night and ended up staying two, in two different cabins, as our first one was booked for the second night. They are very comfortable, surprisingly warm and had a kitchen area so we could eat in one night. There is a little shop nearby where you can buy food to cook. Good views over the water and the surrounding hills. They are quite pricey, but then if you are converting from GBP, everything is pricey in Norway. Worth it though for the fantastic experience.

We chose Reine Rorbuer because we want to get to the farthest point in Lofoten and to enjoy the alluring sceneries and fjords right at the doorsteps. We had 2 huts (Aksel 37 & Brodtkorb 36), though a bit pricey and located quite a distance from the carpark, they were still our good choices. They are warm and cozy, look exactly as the property photos. We could easily cook our own meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. The staff are friendly and helpful. As a package, this truly create unforgettable memories of ours, the fishermen's huts in the picture-postcard Lofoten.

What a stunning location......every where you look is drop dead gorgeous .......don't even bother putting your camera away.....the Lofoton Islands are a very special place......

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Reine Rorbuer and enjoyed our stay very much....

Pros

We had cabin 20 which is right on the water.....it was an amazing wake up call to see rainbows in the morning ( yes double ones each morning over the mountains). It was however a rather expensive stay around $280/ night with no breakfast.

Living area is comfortable and cozy, it was nice to pop popcorn in the evening, make our own food and have a home away from home

Staff is helpful and very friendly

We ate at the restaurant one night and enjoyed the cozy fire, very kind and accommodating waiter and wonderful meal of rack of lamb and stockfish stew.....

The location is very central and handy for touring A (Norwegian museum) which is south and also up the coast towards Leknes......

Quiet and peaceful area with a delightful cafe and grocery store right next door.....

Cons

Bed was somewhat hard for my taste....

There is no way to communicate with the reception area except walking ( in the rain in my case) up to it

Management should consider offering breakfast free of charge as these cabins are so expensive

Challenging to find your cabin if you arrive after dark and there is no one around to help you.......

This was one of the places that we kinda splurge on while visiting norway. We got a 1 bedroom, kitchenette with a private bathroom. It was a lovely big size cabin with a nice bathroom with heated floors. We got another door leading to a private back that's shared with another cabin next door. There's a table and chairs so we can eat meals and take pictures. Staying in Reine was amazing. We walked outside at night and there were strong northern lights and it was such a treat. You really need a car to be in lofoten (just saying)... we drove to the supermarket and got food to prep for meals and we went out for one night and had lunch (cafe) at a different town while we were out exploring. I would def stay here again and there's a gas station right outside so they have the basics if needed.
