Sjøstrand Rorbuer

SJØSTRAND Rorbuer is located in an old traditional fish farm at Ballstad in Lofoten. Here, fishermen who ran the Lofoten fishing lived here, and the fish buyer with their employees. The fish farm was operated under the company name "Johan Rist", from the early 1900s. Eventually, 2 of his sons took over the daily operations. And from about 1950 the fish farm was run under the company name "Johan Rist & Sønner", and right up to 1985 it was operated with fish reception here. In 1991 we (Mary Ann & Børge) bought the place, which was then in very poor condition. The first thing we did was to prepare a reception for fish so that we could produce our own catch, so-called self-production.



In the summer you can enjoy the Lofoten from the seaside by making use of the local route between Nusfjord and Ballstad. By following the old transport route on the inner lane, this boat route gives you a wonderful experience of Lofoten's nature. The boat route is also good to use for those who do not want to cycle through the underwater Nappstraumen tunnel.

The ferry goes from Bertelvika, Ballstad. Look for signs down to the right when you pass the driveway to Kremmervika.
