Å (Moskenes)

( Å, Moskenes )

Å (Norwegian pronunciation: [oː], from å meaning "stream") is a village in Moskenes Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. It is located about two kilometres (1+14 mi) southwest of the village of Sørvågen on the island of Moskenesøya, towards the southern end of the Lofoten archipelago. It is connected to the rest of the archipelago by the European route E10 highway, which ends here. This part of the highway is also called King Olav's Road.

Until the 1990s, Å was mainly a small fishing village specializing in stockfish, but since then tourism has taken over as the main economic activity. The town features the Lofoten Stockfish Museum and the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum as two big tourist attractions.
