If you go to Scandinavia try rorbucamping in the wild and quiet fjord and mountain area Steinfjorden on the Atlantic side of the LOFOTEN islands, Norway.

In Maervoll in Steinfjorden you find the budget accommodation Joh. L. Unstad Sjohus (Johluns). The white seahouse (Johluns) has rorbu rooms (2-6 beds per room) with a total of 40 beds for rent. You may rent rorbu rooms with or without wc/shower. The seahouse has its own quay with a gorgeous view to the fjord and the proud sea alpine Lofoten mountains Himmeltindene (the Heaven Peaks). The seahouse is spacious with special good opportunities for backpackers, youth groups and other low budget groups. Rowing boats may also be rented.

Situation: in Steinfjorden on the Atlantic side of the Lofoten island Vestvagoy at the hamlet Sortland close to Maervoll in Lofoten. The seahouse was earlier in use for the cod and tusk (brosme) fishery during the winter and summer seasons and had then the name Mærvoll (Maervoll) Produksjonslag (fishermen cooperation).

Rent: from NOK 300-650 (1-6 persons) per rorbu room per night. If for instance four persons share a rorbu room, the rent will be NOK 550/night or NOK 138 per person. One person per room, NOK 300/room/night, two persons per room NOK 400/room/night, six persons NOK 650. The guests decide themselves how many persons there are to be in a rorbu room (one orders a room, not a bed). The rent prices are based on the condition that the guests clean/wash their rooms before departure so that the rooms are ready for new guests to come. If the cleaning is not done, an extra payment will be charged.

A cottage with sea view (bed space for 4 persons) may also be rented. The rent for this little vacation accommodation is from NOK 3700 up to NOK 4200/week. Rowing boat may also be rented.
