Rorbu | Manndalen sjøbuer offers accomodation next to the sea in the beautiful village of Manndalen, by the Lyngenfjord. We have 8 sjøbuer, each with room for 4 persons and sauna. We also rent out boats to our guests.
Manndalen Sjøbuer lies by the fjord in Kåfjorden, a sidearm to the Lyngenfjord. The 8 “sjøbuer” are nicely furnished, has a nice view of the fjord and almost all have their own sauna. Each sjøbu has room for 4 persons.
Manndalen is a special valley as the Sami, Kven and Norwegian cultures live side by side. The Centre for Northern Peoples, is only a few kilometres up in the valley and here you will find a museum, a library and a café. Furthermore the festival Riddu Riddu takes place here in july every year.
The 8 Sjøbuer, each 35 sqm, are side by side on the seaside and has a great overview of what happens in the harbour. All of them have a livingroom with a kitchen, bath and a bedroom for two persons on the ground floor as well as a loft with two beds. Most of the Sjøbuer has their own sauna. TV and free Wifi is, of course, available.
A big outdoor terrace and a grill is available for all to use.
