Anker Brygge – Svolvaer Lofoten Islands
Anker Brygge – Rorbuer
My stay at Anker Brygge, without a doubt, was my favourite in Norway. I stayed in one of the rorbuers right on the water which provided not only great views and subtle maritime sounds, but the accommodation was warm and cosy.
Equip with a mini kitchenette, I was able to cook for myself and have that all important morning coffee. The bed was warm and comfortable and lounge area, spacious and relaxing. The staff in reception were extremely helpful. Breakfast was served in the adjacent pub (more on that later) and was a hearty delicious meal in itself. Thanks to Phon for the chats and her hospitality. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Anker Brygge – Pub
The friendliest, most generous, and knowledgeable staff if ever there was! I spent 2 nights as a bar fly, hearing stories, learning about the Lofoten Islands and Norway and participating in numerous conversations with the locals and the bar manager Yohnas. He went above and beyond the call of good service, advising me on food options (his mother’s own recipe was a delight), allowing me to sample dried fish and other local
delicacies and most importantly trying out a few shots of Akvavit! Yohnas is a credit to the pub and the owners should be very proud of the lengths he goes to to ensure customers are relaxed and happy! I was fortunate enough to witness the northern lights right from outside the pub which was a huge treat, gazing up into the sky, belly full of local food and beer! How perfect.
