Å (Å i Lofoten), from å meaning “stream”, is a village in Moskenes municipality in Nordland county, Norway. It is located about 2 km 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. In the past, Å was mainly a small fishing village specialising in stockfish.

The village (originally a farm) is first mentioned in 1567 (“Aa”). The name is from Old Norse á which means “(small) river”. The name was spelled Aa until 1917 when the Norwegian language reform changed the letter aa to å. The village is sometimes referred to as Å i Lofoten (“i” means “in”) to distinguish it from other places named Å.
