Norway's Arctic Islands

Lofoten, Senja & Tromsø
You stay in an eclectic mix of a cosy fisherman's cabin, the famous Hurtigruten coastal steamer, a renovated fishing village and a city hotel.

Svinøya Rorbuer, Svolvær

Meal arrangements: breakfast, plus dinner on two nights

Svinøya Rorbuer
All of the rorbu cabins are of a high standard and have one double or twin bedroom, a well-equipped kitchen-cum-lounge, a modern shower room and, perhaps most importantly, wonderful views over the water. They have been renovated, or built from new, using local materials and craftsmanship to maintain the atmosphere of a traditional rorbu. Breakfast, and three-course dinners featuring delicious fish dishes, are served in the Svinøya Rorbuer's waterfront restaurant, Børsen Spiseri, housed in an historic building close to the rorbu that dates back to the 1820s. (Included dinners are for your second night and the evening before you board the Hurtigruten steamer.) 


Hurtigruten Coastal Steamer, from Lofoten to Finnsnes, & on to Tromsø

Meal arrangements: breakfast only

Hurtigruten Coastal Steamer
We include an outside cabin with a shower, WC and two beds, one of which can be converted into a sofa. Breakfast is a typical Norwegian buffet breakfast featuring cold meats, eggs, cheese and cereal. There is a friendly, informal atmosphere on board; the ship acts as a vital link between isolated communities.


Hamn-i-Senja, Senja

Meal arrangements: dinner & breakfast

This beautiful hamlet suits its spectacular location, nestling on a small spit of land off the coast of Senja. There was once a bustling fishing community here dating back to the 1880s, though today the refurbished buildings house elegant accommodation, including public lounges and an excellent restaurant, Storbrygga Spiseri, which serves traditional Norwegian dishes often featuring seasonal seafood. We include light-filled suites overlooking the harbour, each with a seating area, fully-equipped kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, panoramic windows and private deck. With a sauna, small gym and outdoor hot-tub in a former fishing boat for your use, too, Hamn really is a wonderful place to relax.


Hotel With, Tromsø

Meal arrangements: breakfast only

Hotel With
Located on the historic waterfront, looking out over the water to the mountains beyond, the delightful Hotel With – complete with a sauna – offers easy access to Tromsø’s main attractions. The bedrooms are smart and comfortable, and furnished with lots of light wood. A complimentary light supper (soup, warm dish and salad) is laid on each evening, while a snack (cake or waffles and coffee) is offered in the late afternoon.
