is one of the largest recreation and fishing depots in Northern Norway. It is located on the island of Andøya (the northernmost island in the Vesterålen archipelago), in the picturesque valley of Skarsteindalen. The island is famous for its unique geographical features – the ocean drops straight down to 2500 meters just off the island’s coast, creating a wall nurtured by the prevailing warmth of the Gulf Stream. Such conditions are very favourable for plankton growth and, therefore, all sorts of fish, birds and whales. In winter, this is one of the best places in the world to see aurora borealis (more commonly known as the Northern Lights), a fantastic astronomical phenomenon that leaves everybody breathless.
