Leknes Havn port of the city is one of the most important and frequented ports for cruiseships in Norway. The Hol Church is situated on the east outskirts of the city. Leksnes is a "twin town" with the neighbouring Gravdal hamlet, where the Nordland Hospital is based. The Gravdal lies about 4 km south-west of Leknes.

The Leknes is the trade and commercial center of the Lofoten region, which only Svolvær competes with. E10, the road through the city, connects all the Lofoten archipelago with the continent.
