Are you looking for lodgings that have soul and charm? A place to stay where you feel a sense of history, the whisper of bygone times? Then this is the list of great accommodation options for you!

By staying at these places, you are essentially following in the footsteps of previous generations of Helgelanders, and getting insights into their livelihoods and the lives and communities they built. Stone by stone, timber by timber, they built rorbu fishermen’s cabins, wharf buildings and trading posts near rich grounds and along the shipping lanes. They built on storm-swept islands, along the harsh coast, by fjords, and along rivers in the inland mountains.
