BY BUS:

Buses are high quality but not very frequent (on average 2 each day in both directions) and relatively expensive*. Including stops and changes of bus it takes half a day to travel the 150 km between Svolvaer and A i Lofoten** .

To find out the times.

*Example: 158Nok/person from Moskenes to Svolvaer, count 3hrs to 3:30hrs travel time (depending on connections in Leknes).
**to find out how to read the time tables, please refer to the timetables in : "How to get to the Lofoten Islands"

BY CAR: 

Undoubtedly the most practical if you want to be independent. If you don’t have your own car you can hire one when you get there. In the high season (July and early August) it is, however, sometimes difficult to find rental vehicles available. The local Exploranor agency can provide hire cars and book your accommodation using the liberty forms.

THE "BOAT-TAXI" FROM REINE TO VINSTAD/KJERKFJORD:

To reach the end of the Reine fjord in order to explore the beach in Bunnes or hike to the Horseidet beach or Selfjorden you need to take this small boat from the centre of Reine. There are lots of people in summer, however, and you must get to the landing dock at least 30-45 minutes ahead of time. The boat leaves as soon as it is full (it doesn’t always wait until the scheduled time and may depend on the mood of the captain, which varies depending on the cycle of the moon :-)). Prices available here.

      Day Length in the Lofoten

      The Lofoten archipelago is located above the Arctic Circle, the result of this situation is a period of permanent days in summer and at the opposite a period of permanent night in winter (polar night).

      To organize properly your trips and expedition in this region, it is important to take this phenomenon into account due to the high latitude. Discover our sunset/sunrise calendar
