Welcome to Å Vandrerhjem and the small fishing hamlet within Lofoten. At the Å hostel there are ten 100-year-old cabins which have been carefully restored to high standards in the traditional ‘rorbu’ style. It has a charming atmosphere and excellent setting overlooking the sea.

The hostel is located in a museum area with old buildings and a small grocery store, and is housed in two buildings - Hennumgården house and the top floor of Lofoten Stockfish Museum. Some rooms face the sea and have a fantastic ocean view, and facilities include a large kitchen, dining room, TV area and a terrace. The garden, ’Hennum Garden’ is worth a visit, which is part of a project called ‘Ancient gardens in Lofoten’.

From the small village of Å are various hiking routes which means you can take in the breath-taking views of the Lofoten area.

Parfait pour un nuit. Les seules choses à améliorer sont : - le chauffage du logement avant d'arriver, - l'information sur les horaires d'ouverture de la réception pour recevoir les clés.

Attraction tip

If you don't have a car it's definitely worth renting a bike and drive around for a bit.
