You will get the chance to be a part of “Lofotfisket” (Lofoten fishing), the most traditional and historical fishing that has been in Norway.

Ballstad has hundreds of years with fishing history, and is to this day one of Lofoten’s most active fishing spot.

This is a perfect place to really get to experience the real “Lofotfisket”!

With our site in the middle of Lofoten it is easy to do daytrips to the west part of Lofoten one day, and to the east part of Lofoten another day.


Hemmingodden is a great spot for fishing and a short distance to good fishing spots where it is possible to catch cod, halibut, coalfish (seithe), catfish and monkfish.

We can give you the opportunity to stay in our seahouse with four different  fisherman’s cabins (Kokkbua, Olufbua, Linbua and Garnbua), in addition to two separate units in Annebua and Harald house.

The seahouse was under “Lofoten fishery” used as a residential for people living onboard the fishing boats like Grunnbøen and Kvalvikbøen, while Annebua is on top of where the fish was unloaded from the fishing boat.
