Sørvågen is a fishing village in Moskenes Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. It is located on the island of Moskenesøya in the Lofoten archipelago. The village of Å lies just to the south. Moskenes Church is located just north of the village along European route E10.
The village has several scenic and tourist attractions in and around the village. It contains a local department of the Norsk Telemuseum (Norwegian Telecom Museum) which reflects the local history of telegraphy.
In 1861, the island became part of the 170 kilometres (110 mi) long Lofoten telegraph line with a station in Sørvågen (which became the Sørvågen museum in 1914), being finally connected with Europe in 1867.
