From the Hurtigruta and express boat docks, as well as the bus stop in Svolvær, there is a 15-20 minute walk.

From the square in Svolvær, follow Vestfjordgata out of the city center until you arrive at Svinøy Bridge – the largest bridge in Svolvær. It is on the right hand side when you arrive from the center. After crossing the bridge, continue straight ahead, follow the left turn, and take the first road up to the right. A fairly steep gravel road leads up to the house, which is on the top of a hill. There is a sign on a lamppost down by the road.

If you are carrying a lot of luggage, it is recommended that you take a taxi. The taxi central is just next to the bus stop. It is worth noting that the taxi drivers usually will not drive up the last hill to Kunstnerhuset, but feel free to ask the driver for assistance in case of difficulties. The same applies for departures: you will need to carry your own luggage down to the road.

From the airport in Svolvær: ca. 5 km.

Taxis can be booked by phone: +47 07550 or Taxifix
When calling this number, you will reach the Taxi Central in Bodø. You will therefore need to provide the address of Kunstnerhuset when booking you taxi:
Bernt Salvesens vei 14, Svolvær.
