Å

Jump to: navigation, search

Å, pronounced "Oh", is the southernmost town on the island of Moskenesøya in the Lofoten archipelago of Norway. The name means simply "river" or "stream", and the town is also known as Å i Lofoten to distinguish it from other places called Å.

Get in[edit]

Å can be reached from the Moskenes ferry terminal on foot, by car or by bus, and is around a 20-40 minute walk or 5 minute drive. There is also a bus that goes from Narvik (and Evenes Airport) to Å

Get around[edit]

There are bikes for hire at the Youth Hostel and some hiking paths are dotted around the surrounding area.

See[edit][add listing]

A ferry to the Moskenesoya maelstrom (a swirling circular current off the coast of the island), and the fishing museum are arguably the two main attractions of the village. The village sits between a picturesque lake and the North Sea, with many of the wooden buildings being built over water on stilts.
