Ferry and express boat timetables to Lofoten

When you travel through Northern Norway, you are often reliant on boat transportation to reach all the gems along the way. You can travel to the Lofoten Islands by ferry or express boat from the north or south. In 2012 four new gas-powered ferries were stationed on the routes Bodø – Værøy – Røst – Moskenes and Bognes – Lødingen. This provides extra vehicle space and a comfortable voyage.
