About Us

Kræmmervika Havn is a fisherman shack hotel in the heart of Lofoten, offering accommodation in Northern Norway’s most beautiful surroundings and a restaurant with traditional Norwegian cuisine. We are located at Ballstad, between Leknes and Å.

Ballstad is a fishing village that dates from Norse times, and has been in use ever since. In time, Ballstad has grown into a somewhat larger town with permanent residents, shops and tourism, but retains its identity as one of Lofoten’s largest fishing villages to this day.


Traditional and modern

Rorbuene now used by Kræmmervika Havn was built in the late 19th century for use by fishermen. Since the 50s, the traditional log cabins have also been in use by travelers and tourists during the summer season. This wonderful part of North-Norwegian history is now continued and safeguarded by Kræmmervika Havn.

We want to keep the fisherman shacks as authentic as possible while maintaining a high standard. Kræmmervika Havn is traditional lodging combined with the modern comfort expected of a hotel.
