We have driven along the scenic road to arrive in the small town of Andenes. It is a really tiny town which main claim to fame is its function as a base for whale watching tours. There are tours departing every day during the season so you have the change to go out and look for the big creatures if you like.
We are not going for a tour but decide to have a little look around the town to see what is here. A walk around the town doesn’t take long since the settlement is pretty small so I guess we see what there is to see in a ten minutes’ walk.
There are a couple of different museums in the city but we only head inside a whale museum. In the basement of the shop where you can book whaling tours is a small museum – we are not completely sure if the museum is open or not – but the door is open so we have a look around. There is a little story of the whales you can read before or after a whaling trip.
After the museum we head out to see the main landmark of the city a big light house which is close to the museum down at the end of a little road.
We figure there isn’t much more to see in the city so we head back to our small place for the night.
