The Nordic Nomad

Henningsvær, Norway

Trevarefabrikken

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

Industrial-chic gem Trevarefabrikken breathes new life into an erstwhile carpentry and cod liver oil factory in Norway’s Henningsvær. This cultural and lodging hotspot, reimagined by Jonathan Tuckey Design, stands in the stunning Lofoten archipelago. Its story? A fascinating transformation from a 1940s derelict factory to a buzzing cultural hub, thanks to a group of friends who, inspired by its heritage and breathtaking vistas, started reinventing it in 2014. Today, Trevarefabrikken is a vibrant testament to local history and industrial ingenuity, offering a unique blend of maritime and industrial legacy and modern Nordic minimalism.

What are the rooms like?

Step into a room at Trevarefabrikken, and you’re stepping into a blend of historical authenticity and contemporary comfort. The rooms, adorned in pale green hues with wooden accents, offer stunning sea views, framed by either wooden shutters or cheerful yellow curtains. The charm lies in the details: wood-marked concrete walls echoing the building’s past, and a snug sleeping nook ingeniously crafted from a former goods lift. It’s a place where the rawness of industrial heritage meets the warmth of Nordic design, creating spaces that are both evocative and inviting. The rooms we’d like to highlight? The Paintroom, the Dorm, the Big Loft and the Loft – each with a unique story linking back to the factory’s original purpose.

What else?

Beyond the comfort of your room lies a world of cultural and culinary delights. Indulge in local flavours at the on-site café, restaurant and pizzeria, or unwind with a sauna session while gazing at the Northern Lights. At the heart of this cultural hub is Trevarefest, an annual festival that captures the spirit of the Lofoten archipelago. Unlike the glitz and glamour of mainstream festivals, Trevarefest is a celebration of local charm and community. It’s where the rugged beauty of Norway meets the warmth of its people. Here, under the midnight sun and possibly the Northern Lights, you’ll experience authentic music, art and cuisine, all served with a side of genuine Norwegian hospitality.
