Nyvågar Rorbuhotell is idyllically located at the Lofoten Sea, in the historically important area called Storvågan.
Here we have comfortable and spacious fishing huts with hotel standard, and a restaurant in squire style. Bright meeting rooms with large windows provide an unobstructed view of the magnificent scenery outside.
In Lofoten, the fishing huts have given shelter to local fishermen and visitors who have caught fish at sea for more than a thousand years. You will become a part of this tradition. True, the standard has been upgraded quite a lot since then, but still.
There is something about the smell of salt water in the morning. Clear blue sky and an opportunity to make your own cup of coffee in your own kitchen, before breakfast. Open doors to the world and feel the good in life.
The medieval Medici were well aware of Vågar.
FFirst, we must say that the current Nyvågar and Kabelvåg is a place where you are going to feel happy. The place, the people and the scenery are all real attractions. You will be welcomed by generous people in large environments.
But about the Medici: In the Medici Palace in Florence, there is a map of the inhabited world, Orbis Terrarum. On the very top of the map, there is Vågar - the northernmost town of the world at the time. The explanation is simple: Cod came from here. Cod became the important stockfish.
