Kunstnerhuset (ʻArtist Houseʼ) in Lofoten has accommodated artists since the early 1950s, when it was founded by Norwegian and Swedish artists’ associations. Today, we welcome artists from all over the world.

Rooms can be let on weekly and monthly basis. The house is located on Svinøya island, overlooking the shoreline and in walking distance to Svolvær town centre.

See Kunstnerhuset’s webpage for booking and further information.


North Norwegian Art Centre runs residency programmes and other activities at the Kunstnerhuset. Information about these is published on PROGRAMME, labelled NNKS AiR.
