I have nothing but love for this place. Helped me out when a hostel I had planned on staying in was no longer in business. The front desk staff have been very helpful in answering questions and giving me information about the area and how to get around. Heated bathroom floors, wonderful views, and a great location (close to coffee shops, restaurants, a nice walk along the harbor, etc.)
P.S awesome internet and the continental breakfast is wonderful.

It also means that the fish love it so the happy Norwegian folk have been fishing here for at least 1000 years. Some of the things we loved about the Lofotens: . Arriving on the express boat from Bodo, being entranced by walls of granite shooting out of the sea. . Staying in Rorbuers - converted ...
... and so I simply sat at the speed limit of 90kph all the way. Finally its into the mountains and before long every river and lake is frozen solid. We have entered a wonderful National Park and the scenery soon becomes really beautiful. On this route the railway runs alongside the road the entire way to Narvik and I caught up with a coal train just before the mountains and so took a number of shots of it heading up the pass and through the snow mountains. ...
... so effortlessly slip from language to language. I guess our only saving grace as travellers is that we are not LOUD! (as some of our closest ally's citizens tend to be) and very humbled by our ignorance!
Our layers are getting an early thrashing, needless-to-say.
Yesterday was, circumstantially, the competition day of the annual Cod Fishing Festival - in Svolvaer, the main centrein the Vagan district of the Lofoten Islands. We had intended to bus down to the ...
