The present study is based on a reinterpretation of seismic refraction data as well as gravity data collected by the Seismological Observatory, University of Bergen in the island area of the Lofoten-Vesterålen, Northern Norway. The study shows a good agreement between the seismic and gravity modelling of the Moho depths along the profile line between the two shotpoints Hamnøy (Lofoten) and Stø (Vesterålen). A maximum Moho-depht of 26 km is observed about 85 km from Stø, and it would seem that the rse of the Moho towards Stø is moderate. On the other hand there is a distinct shallowing of the Moho beneath the Lofoten area.
