On arrival in Andenes your private transport will pick you up at

Andøya airport and bring you to you accomodation in Marmelkroken in Bø.

Marmelkroken is located in the beautiful village of Bo on the seaward side of Andøya, very far north of Nordland county, close to the forest, valley and mountains with the ocean as its nearest neighbor.When you arrive, you will be warmly greeted by Lisbeth.With good knowledge of the local areas and the activities and experiences offered at Andøya in Vesterålen, the hosts at Marmelkroken could help with planning, so that your stay is the best possible.

Day 2
Andenes, Norway
Marmelkroken Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today after breakfast you will go to Andenes for your whalesafari, visit to the whale museum and Aurora Spaceship.

Sailing time to the whale grounds will be approximately 50 minutes. But it is not unusual that it may take longer or shorter time. Whales can move far in a short time and there are large areas to search.

The type of whale that you will see most both summer and winter is the sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus). This species is a dive master specialized on the deep sea. In the area outside Andenes the average dive time is around 30 minutes, after which the whale comes again to the surface breathe and get ready for another dive. We approach the whale cautiously when it is on the surface and get ready to watch the whale diving and disappearing into the depths again. Quite often there are several whales in the area and we can hence watch another whale instead of waiting for the same one to come up again. We can not guarantee what species we are going to observe from time to time, but we are confident that we will manage to find some kind of whale during the trip.You will also have time for a visit to the whale museum.The museum covers a number of topics around the whales’ biology and ecosystem they live in. Further, research on whales, the local conditions that enable whale watching, as well as specific information about the various whale types, are covered topics. The museum has also a real skeleton of a sperm whale.

Before visiting the Spaceship Aurora there will be Fish soup at the restaurant Riggen.

Spaceship Aurora is a new visitor-educational and activity center linked to Andøya Space Center. At Spaceship Aurora you can experience a virtual trip into space, learn more about / get to know more about the Northern Lights, get more knowledge of the origin and effect on our planet, and how the Northern lights are reflected in Norwegian history and culture.

great walking tour! We loved our guide and learned quite a bit. She was flexible and ended switching gears a bit to talk to us about the Beer Culture in Copenhagen. I never hesitate to trust Cassandra and her suggestions.
