The Fredvang Bridges (Norwegian: Fredvangbruene) are two cantilever bridges that connect the fishing village of Fredvang on Moskenesøya island with the neighboring island of Flakstadøya. The bridges are located in the municipality of Flakstad in Nordland county, Norway.

The south bridge is called Kubholmleia Bridge (Norwegian: Kubholmleia bru) and the north bridge is Røssøystraumen Bridge (Norwegian: Røssøystraumen bru). Both bridges are 240 metres (790 ft) long and have a main span of 115 metres (377 ft).[1][2][3]

The bridges were opened in 1988. They are among many bridges that connect the islands of the Lofoten archipelago to each other. The only other bridge connecting these two islands is the Kåkern Bridge.
