Lofoten // A place to stay for a good night sleep

Catogården is also just next to the local ferry of Reinefjorden, that brings you to the secluded beaches of Bunes and Horseide.

That also goes for booking tickets for fishing trips or rib safaris. The house is close to the football field, the art gallery and tourist information of Reine kultursenter.

Your host in the beautiful village of the Lofoten islands!

Norwegian actress, kayak instructor, ordinary sailor, rescue diver, yoga teacher and mother. Owner of Catogården, and at your service :-)

Runhild Olsen started her working career on the ocean of Moskensstraumen in Lofoten, fishing together with her father on the boat Reinejenta`. Later on, after a year of studying wildlife ranging, she set the course to the theatre. Here she spent over 15 years of touring and playing at festivals, for both young and grown up audience. In 2016 she decided to move back to the little fishing village of Reine, with a two year yoga education in her backpack, together with several courses of kayaking  .. and here the adventure of rebuilding Catogården started. The decision to travel back north, has given her the possibility of enjoying pure nature, hiking in mountains, experience wild weather, and grow her interest for harvesting seaweed and wild herbs. When you rent a room in her little homely hotel of Catogården, the money goes to the further renovations of the house. Choose your favourite season, and check out the rooms available at her Airbnb site. You can find more photos on @runhildofreine and #catogården :-)
