  • BY CAR
    When you plan on driving to the Lofoten Islands by car, you can either use one of the ferry connections or drive the E10 from Narvik, that connects the islands to the mainland with tunnels and bridges. Ferries leave several times each day from Bognes to Lødingen, and from Bodø to Moskenes. Most visitors here use a rented or private car to get around the islands. The roads are narrow, so please drive carefully and mind that some roads are single file with meeting places.
