Getting there & away
Two to four daily buses run north from Sortland to Risøyhamn (one hour) and Andenes (two hours). Buses to/from Harstad (2¼ hours) run one to four times daily. You can also take the twice-daily express bus to Narvik (Nkr294, four hours) on the mainland or Svolvær (Nkr248, 2¼ hours), to which three to five local buses also run daily. The express bus between Fauske (Nkr370, 5¼ hours) and Svolvær stops in daily too.
Sortland is also a stop on the Hurtigruten coastal ferry.
