Moskenes

Moskenes is a village on the Moskenesøya island in Lofoten.

Understand

Moskenes is the main arrival point by ferry on Moskenesøya.

Get in

By ferry

Several ferries a day from Bodø to Moskenes (187 NOK for passengers; tickets are sold on board only, without reservation). Travel time: 3h15.

There is also one ferry a day to the islands of Værøy and Røst, South-West of Moskenesøya.

There is no ferry terminal as such, but only a (very small) waiting room, and (free) toilets outside.

By bus

Several buses a day from Svolvær (Lofoten) and Narvik (mainland Norway). The main bus stop is right in front of the ferry waiting room.

Get around

Moskenes is very small and can be just walked.

See

Do

There is no tourist information in Moskenes (despite a bug on OpenStreetMap showing one). The nearest one is in Reine.

Buy

No supermarket in Moskenes. Nearest opportunities are in Å (very small though) and Reine (a little larger but certainly not big either).

A small rent-a-car shop is open near the ferry terminal.
