Maybe it would be a good idea not to serve whale meat at the restaurant. Surfers generally should be for the ocean wildlife. Not against it. In this ecological and extinction crisis, Norway’s cultural traditions cannot serve as an explanation for supporting whale hunting in a surf spot. In short, this gives a very bad image for the place.

Attended surf lessons at Unstad Arctic Surf a few years ago, but this time we went to meet friends for coffee and a hike in the mountains. The friendly atmosphere where everyone talks to everyone else (even with the required distance between tables) was a fantastic experience after months of social distancing. The cinnamon buns are really the best in the world as advertised, and Unstad is a lovely area for hiking if you’re not into surfing. We’ll be back next time we’re in Lofoten!

I have just returned form 10 days based at Unstad Arctic Surf, I was actually not there for play but work! We had taken over the place as we were filming a program for National Geographic. I travel the world regularly and stay in many hotels/lodgings, but nothing like this! We became part of Marion's family. She runs a fantastic property with an array of different lodgings for different budgets. The food was sublime, every night we were treated to a 3 course meal that kept us coming back for more. The coffee was great and the warm cinnamon buns the best I have ever tasted. I thank everyone at UAS for making us feel at home as soon as we arrived, it is truly a special place and location to visit, surf, relax and eat cinnamon buns! I look forward to going back. Many thanks, Steve

Probably great if you are a surfer... Otherwise: not worth it. I have to admit that the room is good tho: a lovely cabin with plenty of rooms...even though we were only two travellers. Otherwise, the staff is nice but very unorganised. First they said they did not find a trace of our booking (fortunately I had a copy), then they did not tell us that we should have asked to have a breakfast (because it was the low-season and even though it is included in the price of the room). So we had no dinner nor breakfast. And since Unstad is very remote, you will not find another place to eat there. Therefore: buy you own food BEFORE going there, or clearly ask them when you arrive.

I went there alone during low season thinking about the price I paid was to a "hotel" at least with a bit of facility and services the place is in the middle of nowhere not right at the beach. it was unattended early by 3pm. The reception and restaurant were simply dark and closed I found myself inable to get access to everywhere. No one was there to serve or provide any activities. I had to change place to stay the next day. Of course they didn't think it was their problem saying that they "upgraded" my room to a cabin. Big deal? nope My biggest regret in Lofoten was to choose staying there No surf no food no nothing
