Mosken is a small uninhabited rocky island in Værøy Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The 1.5-square-kilometre (0.58 sq mi) island is located in the Lofoten archipelago about halfway between the islands of Værøya to the south and Moskenesøya to the north. The Moskenstraumen maelstrom—one of the most powerful in the world—is located on the north side of the island of Mosken. Historically, the island was used for grazing sheep in both the summer and the winter.
