The landscape is characterised by sheer mountains and a narrow shoreline. Hermannsdalstind, altitude of 1.029 metres, the highest mountain in Western Lofoten. In Moskenes, the fishing villages lie one after the other like pearls on a string. In places like Hamnøy, Sakrisøy, Reine, Sørvågen and Å, to name only a few of them, much can be learnt about everyday life in a fishing village. You can also follow the example of many travellers, and rent a fisherman´s hut, spending your vacation in an authentic and lively environment.

Moskenes has plenty to offer for those who wish to meet the elements. A boat trip by way of the Maelstrom, characterized as one of the fiercest - and possibly the most dangerous ocean currents in the world, brings us to the "Outside" of Lofoten.

At the ferry in Moskenes there is a bust of Colonel Birger Eriksen who was commander of Oscarsborg Fort on April 9, 1940. Oscarsborg Fort and Colonel Birger Eriksen is known for the sinking of the German warship "Blücher" on the 9th of April 1940, the day that Germany invaded Norway during the Second World War. Eriksen was born and raised in Moskenes.
