Getting Around

Getting around is easy. The main islands are linked by bridge or tunnel, and buses run the entire E10 from the Fiskebøl–Melbu ferry in the north to Å at road's end in the southwest. The most useful service is the 23-760, which shuttles across the islands several times a day. You can plan trips online at www.177nordland.no/lofoten.

Tourist offices sell the Hjulgleder, an excellent Lofoten cycling guide (259kr), full of information for cyclists and including handy pull-out maps. Popular routes run from Fiskebøl to Svolvær (68km) and Henningsvær to Stamsund (63km).
