    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.

    Yesterday was a bit chaotic, grab a coffee and let's chat.
    I arrived in Bodo (pronounced similarly to 'Buddha') around 12:45pm, perfect timing to make my way to the boat and head to Svolvaer. They didn't have an information station at the airport like I had hoped, so I ended up asking a car rental lady what is the best way to get to the dock. …

    First full day in Lofoten and despite the weather we still got out and took some reasonable photos. Our day started pretty early as we try to acclimatise to the time change and recover from our jet lag. We were up by 4am already ahead of a 6:30 start out on the road. We drove north from Solvaer with Lofoten still covered in a cloak of darkness. Sunrise was not due until around 8:30ish. Despite the darkness, you ...

    ... thing, and you know it is going to be a small plane when your seat allocation on your boarding plane says 'Free'. That is, scramble to any seat you can that you deem relatively safe, and hope for the best. This is the same plane that yesterday took the advance team, on the back of what has been officially called a hurricane, on a wild journey to a different airport and then a 2.5 hour crazy bus ride ...

    ... I managed to get it and went to climb over the side the captain grabbed the back of my dry suit and told me I was too late- everyone else claimed back on board high fiving each other buzzing that the orcas had swam just meters below them- I was delighted tai was one of the people who got to see it, next time id make sure I was ready. The next hour or so was the best part of the day we were surround constantly by at least 3 families of orcas each with around 7-8 orcas including month ...

    ... to its size. It was well worth it. But, surprise, surprise, it was mighty cold. We left the boat at Svolvaer, the capital of the Lofoten Islands. We had a big of time in the town before we had to board our ship, which hadn't even arrived yet. From the dock we could see Svolvaergeita, or Goat Mountain, named because its two peaks resemble goat horns. Daring adventurers (i.e. idiots) have been known to jump from one horn to the other. While we waited, and because it ...
