About us

A historical fishing village in Lofoten

Risvær Brygger is located on Risvær – the archipelago of Svellingsflaket in the north east part of Lofoten. The beautiful channel Risvær-kjeila is separating the two small islands of Risvær.

The most picturesque and idyllic fishing village in Lofoten, where the fishery dates back to the 1700s because of its sheltered and safe harbour. Even today, there is a great deal of through traffic here.

The island is nowadays populated with holiday homes, and there are tourists as well as locals visiting all year around. The boat season is long in Lofoten, and the sheltered guest marina at Risvær Brygger is a popular spot for families and boaters. The guest marina covers all sizes of berths for boats and yachts, and supplies you with electricity and water.

Risvær Brygger consists of six cozy, spacious, fully equipped and modern fisherman’s cabins with two bedrooms and a loft – with a spectacular view of the Lofoten Mountains and Hamarøya Island in the horizon!

The fisherman’s cabins contains kitchen for your own household, dining table, fireplace, nice bathrooms with shower and floorheating. Laundry machine and dryer included.

Risvær Brygger also offers apartments and rooms in the main house, Bryggehuset, for larger groups up to 16 people.

Café with local dishes and a full licenced pub is also to be found in Bryggehuset, next to the popular Winter Terrace which is great for aurora observations.

We have two heated salt water hot tubs available for rent –where you can enjoy the wildlife and the greatest view of Lofoten.
