The herring migrates into Andfjorden, followed by humpback whales and killer whales - so join in for brilliant whale safari trips during these months. The sun returns at the middle of january, and this is also peak season for the local fishermen and the fishing industry. Winter festivals such as «Nordlyst» with concerts, fireworks display and exhibitions takes place.
