Smaken av Lofoten – The Taste of Lofoten

Hospitality, the joy and love of good food and local culinary traditions are the very cornerstone of Smaken av Lofoten.

We set off towards one of the world’s most perilous stretches of sea, infamous and feared by seafarers for thousands of years. Mentioned by Pytheas the Greek over 2000 years ago, and by world famous authors like Jules Verne, Herman Melville and Edgar Allan Poe.

Overnight accommodation

Each and every one of the time-honoured wooden buildings at Å Sjøhus are listed.

We are located at the end of the E10 road. Å i Lofoten is by many referred to as the most beautiful place in Lofoten.

You will see an impressive panorama here. The Lofoten mountain wall towers up in the background, and across the sea there is an unimpeded view of the Norwegian mainland, the Vestfjord and the Maelstrom.

Today, the time-honoured fishermen’s cabins are used primarily as holiday chalets, but some of them are still put to their original use by professional fishermen.

All of our fishermen’s cabins are top modern and include everything you will need for your stay here with us.

The Norwegian Fishing Village Museum, one of the best preserved and complete old-style fishing villages in the whole of Norway.

Visit several buildings with a variety of exhibitions: the boathouse, the cod-liver oil factory, the smallholder’s cottage, the blacksmith’s, the woodshed, the drying shed, the old post office and the bakery.

Historical Gardens – in an exceptionally beautiful setting. At our summer bakery (with its stone oven dating back to 1844) you can try various types of traditional bread and cinnamon rolls. The Old Shop is full to the brim with locally produced food, souvenirs, books and fishing tackle.


Her føler du at du virkelig er i Lofoten. Du har utsikt rett ut mot Vestfjorden, ser båtene som er ute og fisker, og turistbåtene som glir forbi. Her spiste jeg fiskekaker som er laget av en av beboerne der ute ( Gerd Johnsen ) NYDELIG ! Besøkte juni 2014

Spiste en veldig god bacalao, en porsjon som var så stor at jeg hadde store problemer med å fullføre den. Rent og pent, og hyggelige ansatte.
Restaurant tout à fait correct, proposant une cuisine agréable, même si avec peu de plats. Les poissons sont notamment très réussis. Les prix sont classiques au vu du pays et de la gamme du resto (260-300 NOK le plat).
