Lofoten Rorbuutleie i Skjelfjord .
Skjelfjord is a fisherman’s cabin
built in 1933 and referred to as a “state cabin,” because the fishermen were
given state funding to build such cabins along the coast, so that visiting
fishermen had somewhere to stay during the Lofoten fishery in the meagre 1930s.
The rorbu cabin is situated on the western shore of the Skjelfjord, close to the
shores of the Vestfjord. Short distance to excellent fishing spots with a
variety of species of fish. 5 km to Ramberg, the municipal centre of the
borough, where you will find shops, a doctor’s surgery, post office, tourist
information with internet services and a guesthouse and restaurant.
The rorbu cabin was totally renovated in 2010 and has hot and cold running
water, electricity and toilets.
The cabin consists of: Ground floor with storeroom for fishing tackle, a 250
liter freezer, firewood for the wood stove, two bicycles, a gass grill and
First floor with three bedrooms, Bedroom1 with a bunk bed to sleep two, and
Bedrooms 2 and 3 with a double bed and single bed each to sleep three. There is
also an open loft room with four berths. Altogether 12 berths.
The apartment measures 25 m2 and includes a wood stove, electric heater, water
boiler, coffee maker, microwave, cooker, fridge (large), TV/DVD, radio and CD
player and the opportunity of hiring a Telenor internet adapter. The apartment
is equipped to accommodate 12 people.
