Andøya - 18 National Tourism Routes of Norway Andøya runs along the outer edge of Andøya between Bjørnskinn and Andenes, a total distance of 58 km

Midnattsol på den store sandstranda ved Bleik på Andøya.On the island of Andøya you can wander along some of Norway’s most beautiful beaches and look out over the still waters of the ocean with the midnight sun as your sole companion. This is a trip that is designed for enjoyment. The road itself follows a broad shelf of cultivated land where people have put down roots between the wide ocean and the jagged peaks. If you’re lucky you might see seals, whales and eagles from your car window. In the late summer you can try tasting wonderful cloudberries on the moorland that stretches towards the mountains, or earlier in the summer you can visit the bird cliff on the island of Bleiksøya.

The Gulf Stream makes for a hospitable climate and turns the ocean into an abundant source of food for a rich variety of bird and animal life. Here you can also discover some little-known highlights such as the tiny fishing village of Bleik. Between Nordmæla and Nøss you will find the rock formation Bukkekjerka, where nature itself has contrived to build  a  natural  altar  and  pulpit.  Andøya also  provides a fine stretch of road for cyclists and if you want to view the island from the sea, there are lots of opportunities for kayaking.
