About Nusfjord — Step into a chapter of the Lofoten fairytale

Nusfjord Arctic Resort is a unique destination situated in the enchanting and tranquil fishing village of Nusfjord in Lofoten, Norway. The resort is open all year round - for you to experience the soothing midnight sun in summer and the spectacular northern lights in winter.

As you pass the spectacular mountains passes of Flakstad, breathe in the salty winds of the northern sea, and prepare for immersing yourself in a truly authentic experience of the Lofoten Islands. Wake up in our traditional fishermen’s cabins, swaying on wooden stilts on the salty seafront. Walk along the pier in the intimate historical centre, and get a sense of the deep-running history of this Norwegian gem.

The earliest settlements in Nusfjord dates back to 425 BC. Our unique cultural heritage makes the village one of Norway’s oldest and best preserved fishing destinations, with a long- standing tradition of seasonal cod fishing. In the ‘golden age’ of Nusfjord, over one thousand people inhabited the village centre, but today only nineteen people can call Nusfjord their permanent home.

Practicalities

The resort consists of the 19 cabins that made up the lodging for the Nusfjord fishermen who came to the quaint little village from all corners of Norway to participate in the thriving cod fishing season. The resort have since been developed and refurbished to its current modern and luxurious standard, welcoming guests and explorers from all over the world.

Philosophy

Nusfjord Arctic Resort authentically reflects the rich Lofoten culture and allows us to share the beauty of this valley with our guests, while taking care of the heritage, community and historical buildings. We continually invest in the preservation of the fishing village as a whole, in order to keep one of Lofoten’s finest pearls in good condition for the world to admire and learn from.

People are key to the sustainable development of the resort and its surroundings. Everyone who works here sincerely desires to take care of our guests, motivated by the Norwegian concept of ‘hygge’, a word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment as cosy, charming or special.

As part of the commune of Flakstadøy, we aim to invest in the development of the local community through a straightforward, sustainable model.

We offer our guests unforgettable and authentic experiences among the adrenaline-charged adventures and unique cultural life of the valley, co-created with local partners. We also aim to extend our community outreach by sourcing exceptional, fresh and natural ingredients for our dining experience, where the focus is especially ‘locavore’, to connect our guests to the exceptional flavours of the Arctic.
