Welcome to Moskenesøy
The 34km-long Moskenesøy is the southernmost of the Lofoten Islands. Its spiky, pinnacled igneous ridge, rising directly from the sea and fractured by deep lakes and fjords, is more arresting than anything that even Tolkien could conceive. A paradise for mountaineers, some of the tight gullies and fretted peaks of this tortured island – including its highest point, Hermannsdalstind (1029m) – are accessible to ordinary mortals as well. It's also home to one of the Lofoten's most glorious viewpoints at Reine and perhaps its loveliest village, Å.
