Reine is a fishing village on the Moskenesøya island in Lofoten.
Reine is the administrative centre of the municipality of Moskenes in Nordland county.
By ferryThe most natural way to come to Lofoten is by ferry, usually via Moskenes, a few kilometers away. From Moskenes, a bus (40 NOK) reaches Reine several times a day.
An alternative is to take a ferry to Svolvær (either a regular ferry, or the Hurtigruten), and then take a bus to Reine.
By busSeveral buses a day from Svolvær (Lofoten) and Narvik (mainland Norway), via a transfer in Leknes.

ReinebringenA trip to Reine is not complete without a climb to Reinebringen. Be aware that the path is not easy though, and very steep most of the way. Even worse, it was very much damaged after heavy rains in 2015, and the climb is now fairly dangerous (a warning has been issued at the beginning of the path). Count about 2h (one way) considering the current state of the path. Of course, once on top (almost 400 meters above sea level), the view is really amazing.
Small supermarketSmall supermarket. Expensive prices, and no much choice, but will save your life if you haven't brought enough food from the mainland.
- There is an ATM in the supermarket (hence available only when the supermarket is open).
Blomster bringenNice café located just near the harbour of Reine. Good pastries and relatively cheap coffee and tea. Free Wi-Fi.
