When you get to Stave, you will hear “whale watching” in a dozen different languages. The Whale Safari is just 15 minutes from Stave, and attracts people from all over the world. All summer long, Stave Camping is filled with people just like you who have traveled here for the exact same reason – to meet Moby Dick in the waters off Andøya. Trips run every day from May until September!
Stave offers clean, budget priced cabins and apartments for adventure travelers – and the best beach camping in all of Vesterålen. It is important for visitors to understand that often it takes a few days get out on the Whale Safari – because of wind, weather, or ocean conditions. And if you are going to spend a couple of days on our island, Stave is the best place to stay.
