Svolvaer is in Lofoten.
There is an airport near the town.
There is an express boat service from Bodo everyday except Sunday. The journey takes about 3½ hours. There is also scheduled bus to/from Narvik. In addition, the coastal steamer Hurtigruten arrives at 7PM (southboud) and 9PM (northbound) daily.
Svolvaer is really compact so the best thing you can do is walk.
What to see
There are many art galleries here.
Lofoten War Memorial Museum, Svolvaer, Norway (old postoffice building by the coastal-liner dock in Svolvaer centrum). WWII Museum with it's incredible collection of uniforms and its original chilling, Gestapo interrogation room.
It's not so easy to keep to the budget here. Narvesen kiosk is a good place to buy things such as drink. There's a bookshop in the town, art is being sold in many places and overpriced souvenirs are easy to find.
There's lots of different kinds of accommodation. Hotels are widespread, there's camping or you can get a rorbu (a traditional fisherman's cabin). Sleeping outside is possible as it is quiet, but the temperatures can be near freezing even in the summer and the cold wind from the sea doesn't help at all.
Thon Hotel Svolvaer, O. J. Kaalboes gate 5. The hotel is centrally located in Svolvaer, near the coastal steamer docks, in the heart of the spectacular area of Lofoten.
Svinoya Rorbuer - excellent rorbuer and restaurant on a separate island connected by a long bridge.
Kabelvag Youth Hostel - There is no YHA hostel in Svolvær, but Kabelvag, the next town west on the E10 has a great one. Beds or rooms, breakfast is included in the price. It takes about an hour walk from Svolvær city centre, or a 10 minutes bus ride.
