“The storms come and go, the waves crash overhead, the big fish eat the little fish, and I keep on paddling.”
George R. R. Martin
Sandy beaches, calm sea, blue skies and the stunning scenery of the island can be explored kayaking.
Paddling gives you access to places that can not easily be reached.
Discover secret bays and beaches around the Island, maybe stop to have a picnic.
Residential birdlife is plentifull in Andøya and if lucky you will also get the chance to encounter seals. Seals can be curious about the kayakers and they tend to investigate.
If you are an experienced kayaker, then Stave is the place for you!
