- Losna is an island in the municipality of Solund in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The 15.3-square-kilometre island lies at the mouth of the Sognefjorden, on the north side of the Sognesjøen. The Tollesundet strait lies between the island and the mainland of Hyllestad to the east and the Krakhellasundet strait lies between the island and the nearby island of Sula to the west. The island of Sula sits only about 600 metres to the west. The highest point on the very rocky island is the 451-metre tall mountain Meinova on the northern end of the island.
Losna was the Etruscan moon goddess, and was also associated with the ocean and tides.
