Hattvika Lodge

Hattvika Lodge combines the authenticity of a picturesque fishing village above the Arctic Circle with stylish Scandinavian design

Hattvika Lodge, situated on the small island of Vestvågøya in Norway’s idyllic Lofoten archipelago, offers exclusive accommodation in restored fishermen’s cottages overlooking the harbour, together with newly-built, freestanding hotel rooms set on the hillside with mountains towering behind.

Privately-owned by the same family for six generations, Hattvika Lodge combines the authenticity of life in Ballstad, a picturesque fishing village just above the Arctic Circle, with the comfort and stylish design for which Scandinavia is so well known, plus a plethora of outdoor activities.

The recent restoration and refurbishment of 13 original fishermen’s huts dating back to the 1880s, has resulted in a selection of luxurious accommodation in one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom cabins.

Modern upgrades include bathrooms with under floor heating, fully-equipped kitchens, and contemporary artwork, all of which meld seamlessly with traditional features such as wood cladding from the original 150-year-old buildings.

High ceilings, clean lines, comfortable sofas, soft furnishings, log burners and clever lighting ideas, all add to the homely, yet exclusive ambience created by the owners, husband-and-wife duo, Guri and Kristian Boe.

The newly refurbished cabins include Seaside Suites for two, right by the waterfront, which include breakfast in the property’s new restaurant just a short walk across the quay, and use of a private hot tub, overlooking the harbour.

In addition to the fishermen’s cabins, the Boes have also created Hattvika Hillside, ten newly built, modern freestanding hotel rooms, partly nestled into the rocky terrain, partly perched on impressive steel supports.

Huge picture windows offer truly spectacular panoramic views over the Norwegian Sea and the mountains behind.   It’s even possible to enjoy the Northern Lights during the winter months from the comfort of your hotel bed!

Whichever accommodation type is chosen, a warm welcome awaits all guests from Guri and Kristian, who are always happy to share their extensive local knowledge and to work closely with local suppliers and guides to ensure their visitors have the ultimate Lofoten experience.

Plus, the newly-opened bistro-style restaurant, Fangst, (meaning ‘catch’) aims to provide a memorable dining experience for its guests by producing a range of tasting menus based on sustainable ingredients sourced locally.
