Vesterålen is located on the edge of the continental shelf, where the nutrient-rich ocean is a primary feeding ground for whales. This geographical privilege makes the area perfect for whale watching. Here one can experience some of the world's largest sea mammals at close range. Winter trips are pretty special because of the amazing colors both at mid-day and at night. Sperm whales are present throughout the year, and in the winter we have the chance to observe several other species as well.
The whale safari company Hvalsafari A/S in Andenes is the first, largest and most experienced provider of whale watching in Norway. The company was established over 25 years ago and the long experience enables the crew to know exactly where to look for whales. It is safe, comfortable and very interesting!
The Whale Centre was established in 1988 and is situated in an old fish processing warehouse at the harbour front. The Whale Centre offers a unique combination of tourism, education and research. Researchers from all over the world use the opportunity to develop their projects using the facilities and platforms that the Whale Center at Andenes offers.
