When the question is “Where can I have holiday accommodation facing the sea”, the best answer is usually: “choose one of Helgeland’s many rorbu cabins”. There is something special and deeply soothing about staying right on the water and waking up to the salty scent of the sea and the sound of surf and seabirds. Perhaps you have kayaks or a boat moored at the nearby dock, ready for a new day’s adventures – and a hot tub in which you can soothe your muscles and relax in the evening? It doesn’t get any better!

One of the best things about having a rorbu cabin for your holiday base is that you live comfortably, but feel in contact with the scenery that’s right outside your door, while you are also surrounded by Helgeland’s proud, thriving coastal culture. The traditional fishermen’s cabins (rorbu) and the wharfside buildings come in many forms and sizes. Some are old and carefully refurbished to maintain their authentic feel, while others are newly built. You can find intimate, charming rorbu that are just right for you and your partner, and larger living quarters that will accommodate your family or quite a few friends.
