Reine is one of Lofoten’s best known fishing villages and is the centre of municipal administration in the borough of Moskenes.

Reine is also one of Norway’s most frequently photographed landscapes, and a source of inspiration for many an artist. The beautiful scenic surroundings have also been adopted and used by world famous adventure centres like Epcot, Legoland and Madurodam. There is considerable overnight accommodation capacity in Reine, including over 200 beds and a large number of restored fishermen’s cabins.

Reine is the starting point for boat trips into the Kirkefjord, which is surrounded by precipitous mountains. At the head of the Reinefjord, visitors can cross the mountain pass to the gigantic Bunesstranden beach, considered by many as a hidden paradise. Information from
