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.

We recommend the “Reis” app when planning your trip. Download from App Store, or from Google Play. With the app, you can plan journeys and see departure times for public transport for the whole of Nordland. Logos below identifies the app.


There is more traffic in summer so it’s a good idea to order your tickets a minimum of one day in advance. Most routes have extra departures during the summer months. The routes are carried out by the companies Torghatten Nord and Boreal. Ferry routes and timetables has been phased out, and we recommend using the Torghatten website to find your routes. We have linked to main routes as per below.
