One of Norway’s oldest and best preserved fisherman's villages
Modern comfort meets authentic experiences in one of Norway’s oldest and best preserved fisherman’s villages. The combination of the real feeling of Lofoten and the taste of exclusivity makes Nusfjord to a unique experience by the ocean in the north.
There are traces of settlements dating back to 425 BC, and Nusfjord has been a hub for fishing in the north through the centuries. As you pass the majestic mountains and bays when entering Nusfjord, you’ll pass historical buildings as the smokery, fish oil factory, and our fishing boats; Elltor and Havdur.
The traditional cabins (called rorbu) are safely situated from the weather and winds inside the bay, and has newly been renovated to suit the modern traveller. In the wooden constructions you’ll still find traces of the old, with ropes and some writings from the fishermen that has spent their days here. Sleep like a king or a queen, and wake up to the calming sound of water hitting the wooden pier outside.
With its position in the heart of Lofoten, Nusfjord is never far away from your new favourite activity. Our experienced instructors offer a safe journey if you either want to head out on a fishing trip, go ski touring, try Arctic surfing, or head out to hunt the spectacular northern lights. We are more than happy to adjust the stay to fit your wishes.

Here we invite you to a unique experience with food and drinks, paired with the soothing view out to the ocean. At Oriana Kro, the old potato and whiskey basement, you’ll discover an ocean of different drinks and the area’s only stone oven baked pizza. Together with Landhandleriet Café, where you can enjoy the local fish soup and other treats, Nusfjord sails forward as a special food and drinks adventure for any occasion.
