The Kåkern Bridge (Norwegian: Kåkern bru) is a cantilever road bridge that crosses the Kåkernsundet strait between the islands of Flakstadøya and Moskenesøya in the municipality of Flakstad in Nordland county, Norway. The 303-metre (994 ft) long Kåkern Bridge was opened in 2002. The Kåkern Bridge is one of the many bridges that connect the islands of the Lofoten archipelago to each other. The Fredvang Bridges are the only other bridge connection between Flakstadøya and Moskenesøya.
The present Kåkern Bridge replaced an older suspension bridge. The old Kåkern Bridge was 228 metres (748 ft) long and it was in use from 1961 until 2002 when the new bridge was completed just to the south of the old bridge.
