Reine is an authentic living fishing village in Lofoten famous for its scenic location by the Arctic Ocean and majestic Lofoten peaks.

This tiny and picturesque fishing village is one of best places to stay as you explore the Lofoten Islands. Adventures in Reine are in abundance, and you can really challenge yourself and enjoy activities in the famous Lofoten landscapes.

Active in Nature

Reine is a perfect base for discovering the numerous gems in the Lofoten nature. We’d recommend using a kayak to get up close and personal with the islands of Sakrisøy, Hamnøy and the Reinefjord. This is an activity to enjoy all year round, weather permitting.

Mountain hiking in Reine

Many of the best hikes in Lofoten are close by Reine and if you had one hike to do, "Reinebringen" would be the best choice. This steep route leads to one of the most beautiful viewpoints on all the Islands: an epic panorama of Reinefjorden and the Lofoten Wall.

It is not as difficult to reach Reine as you might think. It is located 125 km west of the Svolvær Airport and 9 km east of Moskenes, the port of arrival for the ferry from Bodø. 

You can visit Reine all year round. In the summer you can enjoy the long days and the Midnight Sun and in the winter the short days with spectacular weather and the Northern Lights.
