“Holiday facing the sea in the Arctic Circle”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This fishing hut is comfy, beautifully presented and works really well as a base to explore the Lofoton Islands - but also to just chill out. Well thought out and containing all that we needed, we really loved staying in this rorbus. The kitchen is well equipped with flour and oil there ready to use, which in turn we repaid by replacing things we finished. The washing machine was brilliant for a family.
Walking from the ferry in Moskines is an easy forty minute introduction via Sorvagen. Arriving at the cabin is easy, meeting the lovely housekeeper, Marit, who covers all the basic instructions, although there is an info pack in the hall containing rubbish bin codes etc. The buses are quite often a bit late but reliable, the bit that is tricky to get to grips with is the timetable!
There are no shops in Tind itself, but a pleasant 15 minute walk away is Sorvagen which has two shops which sell pretty much all the groceries you may need including fresh bread.
Our ferry home was cancelled because of a technical problem on the ferry and with the Tourist information office closed on Saturdays things could have been difficult if it hadn't been for the Marin Anna restaurant in Sorvagen. Not only an oasis of delicious hot chocolate and food, the welcoming staff helped us with wifi and sympathy.

“Fantastic accommodation at Lofoten island”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This fishermen cabin makes your stay at Lofoten islands special. With an extraordinary view and sun from early morning to evening your stay can't possibly be better. The cabin offers all you need for having a relaxing vacation. Good starting point for many hiking tours, for example the popular Munkan. The fisher village Å can easily be reached by walk and also the terminal of the ferry from/to Bodø is close by. We had a great week here!

Lovely cabin with very well equipped kitchen, nice dining and sitting area. Bedrooms small but beds very comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Clean. Great location overlooking small harbour. Nice road walks. Lofotens have stunning scenery. Good bus service.

“A place like home”

The fishermens cabin in Tind is the perfect place to start exploring the beauty of the Lofoten. It is extremely clean and well equiped. You have a kitchen, electric heating and warm shower. The furniture is new and comfortable. And when the weather on the Lofoten gets rough, it is great to have this cabin where you really can feel at home. Mrs . Karlsson, the owner is an extremely nice and helpfull lady and will patiently answer any question you might have. I really can recommend this Rorbu !
