Reine is the administrative center of Moskenes Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The fishing village is located on the island of Moskenesøya in the Lofoten archipelago, above the Arctic Circle, about 300 kilometers (190 mi) southwest of the town of Tromsø. Reine Church is located here and it serves the northern part of the municipality.

The 0.28-square-kilometer (69-acre) village has a population (2018) of 314 which gives the village a population density of 1,121 inhabitants per square kilometer (2,900/sq mi). The local newspaper is the Lofotposten.

Reine has been a trading post since 1743. It was also a center for the local fishing industry with a fleet of boats and facilities for fish processing and marketing. There was also a little light industry. In December 1941, part of Reine was burnt by the Germans in reprisal for a raid on the Lofoten Islands by British troops. Today tourism is important, and despite its remote location, many thousands of people visit annually. The village is situated on a promontory just off the European route E10 highway, which passes through the village. Reine is located immediately to the south of Sakrisoya and Hamnøya.

Allers, the largest weekly magazine in Norway, selected Reine as the most beautiful village in Norway in the late 1970s. A photograph over Reine from the mountain Reinebringen (altitude 448 meters (1,470 ft)) has been used for the front page of several tourist brochures and books. In 1999 the painter Ingo Kühl set up a provisional studio in a rorbu and painted the view over the harbor to the mountain range. In January 2015, Reine was the site from which Coca-Cola launched Coca-Cola life in Norway, referred to by the company as “our smallest launch yet”. More than half the residents of the town (around 200 out of 307) attended this open-air event despite that it was mid-winter. In 2016–2019, a stone staircase was built up to Reinebringen, which made the mountain (previously considered steep, muddy, and difficult to climb) easily accessible.
