We want to share our favourite hiking routes along the coast, on marshland and in the mountains. Andøy offers mountains of various heights, and none higher than 1000 meters. The Andøy mountains are easily accessed and offer wonderful views of the Vesterålen archipelago. We can also take you hiking along the seashore or on the vast marshlands. During the hikes you have a chance to see and take photos of arctic wildlife.You need hiking boots, clothes fit for the weather conditions and drinking water.
