Experience staying at the old fishing factory Skata which has become a hotel!

Henningsvær Hotel is located in the world's most famous fishing village, Henningsvær, and has a long history as a fish factory in the golden age of Lofoten fishing. We have preserved the old style of exterior to give our guests impression of how it was in the past at Skata. Here you can wake up and see the sea and mountains from your room. In the winter you can see the fishing boats coming in after hard day at the fishing grounds.

The hotel has 2 buildings used for accommodation, one of which we call Kaihuset and is the original house where workers and owner family lived when the fish farm was in full operation. This is now converted into a hotel and we have tried to preserve the rooms as they were, but all rooms have their own bathroom and shower, although the bathrooms are quite small. Nordbrygga is the second building and here are more modern hotel rooms. In the old days, the building was used as a stockfish storage and yard for repairing boats.

In winter, you can experience the Northern Lights just outside the door because of here there is no light pollution and Miss Aurora can dance freely in the sky. In the summer the days are long and the Midnight sun can be seen from the hotel.

You can always enjoy a good meal at our Restaurant SKATA, located on the pier.
