How to Get Here
If you plan on using public transportation to travel to, from and/or within Lofoten, we recommend Reis Nordland
Leknes Airport, which is located approximately 60 km from Reine, is the closest airport. This means that you will most likely need to use public transportation to travel between the airport and our location. You can also rent a car.
Most flights to Leknes Airport depart from Bodø, but you may get lucky and find direct flights from Tromsø and Oslo as well, depending on the time of year you’re planning on travelling.
Information about flights: Widerøe

If you’d like to travel by boat, you have two options: Moskenesferga ferry or Hurtigruten. Both depart from Bodø heading north. Hurtigruten also departs from Tromsø and other smaller ports heading south.
The Moskenesferga ferry runs between Bodø and Moskenes, which is located 5 km from Reine. It is possible to bring your car on Moskenesferga ferry, but we would recommend that you book your spot in advance. Information about ferry timetables: Car ferry Bodø – Moskenes
There is a car rental service on the ferry docks at Moskenes, so if you’re planning on renting a car during your stay in Lofoten, you won’t have to pay to get the rental car across the fjord. Information about renting a car in Moskenes: Rent a car Moskenes
Hurtigruten runs from Bodø to Stamsund if you’re travelling north, and from Tromsø by route of six smaller ports before you reach Stamsund heading south. Information and timetables for Hurtigruten: Hurtigruten
The distance between Stamsund and Reine is 70 km. You can rent a car on the docks in Stamsund.
If you’re planning on traveling by bus, you’ll most likely have to transfer between buses at Leknes.
Information about bus timetables: Reis Nordland Bus
The bus stop just outside Aqua Lofoten Coast Adventure is called Reine Ytre Havn.
You can either drive your car onboard Moskenesferga ferry (see section ‘By Boat’), or you can drive around, via Bjerkvik, north of Narvik. If you’re coming from the south and think the drive around Bjerkvik will be long, there are a couple of shortcuts across Vestfjorden:
Skutvik – Svolvær, car ferry
Bognes – Lødingen, car ferry
If you’re staying at Lofoten Bed & Breakfast, parking is free at Galleri Eva Harr/The National Park Center. Remember to place a parking slip in the box – you’ll find one in your room, or in the information room.
Please use Google Maps to help find your way:
When you’re taking part in activities with Aqua Lofoten Coast Adventure, there’s a large car park at Reine Ytre Havn, over the hilltop, just behind the booking office.
