Riggen restaurant is located on the first floor at the whale centre which is situated close by Andenes lighthouse. Here you can enjoy a panoramic view of Andenes harbor and the great Atlantic ocean while enjoying good food and drinks. In the summer time you can enjoy the midnight sun crossing over the sky and in the winter time you might get a good look at the Northern Lights or a stormy ocean. Before noon and some hours into the afternoon, the restaurant functions as a café as well. Riggen dancebar is located upstairs and can offer you a nice evening in the same beautiful surroundings.

MENU

Riggen restaurant can offer you a variety of fish- and meat dishes from our a la carte menu. We also have a dinner buffet every day where we serve traditional norwegian fish- and meat dishes. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday we also offer some Thai dishes in the buffet. If you are a pizza fan, we can provide you with our well known Riggen pizza, happily as take away if you want. Call and order in advance and we will have the pizza ready for you when you arrive.

We also have to mention our cake buffet on Saturdays where we serve a large variety of cakes at a reasonable price.

We can also make luch and dinner for tourist groups that has been on whale safari or are going to participate on a whale safari. For more information about this and prices, please contact us.

Possibly the cutest of spermies facts! 🐋 a group of friendly #spermwhales in the Azores hang out with a dolphin who suffers from a spinal malformation (i.e., scoliosis).

Mads Frank Tornhøj Hansen... hvalernes forskningscenter i Andenes kunne også være en mulighed i kandidatoverbygningen?

We are proud to introduce “Breathing Andenes”

Andenes is getting ready to share its Natural Heritage Resources with visitors from around the globe through a Hvalsafari AS project supported by “Innovasjon Norge”. “Breathing Andenes” will improve the marine wildlife tourism experience in Andenes by offering new tourism products and services based on scientific knowledge. The main goals of the project are to minimise the disturbance on the animals, develop a scientific tourism programme, promote the development of local communities, and bring to light the local natural heritage through a territorial marketing strategy. The research activities will bring a positive change in the products the company offers, as well as the transfer of knowledge to locals and visitors, and develop protocols to minimise disturbance of the animals, which will also improve tourist satisfaction.
This project will run through 2021 and 2022 and will be jointly led by Dr Raquel de la Cruz-Modino, anthropologist and associate professor at the University of La Laguna (Spain), Dr Mel Cosentino, cetacean biologist and ecologist, and Gabriela Bellazzi, marketing digital expert specialised in whale watching tourism.

I saw my first northern lights on your campsite ( Andenes camping, 2015 ). was extremely impressive! <3 the entire sky was a green river

Like many others stuck at home, we are tidying up... in our photo folders. We want to share with you some pictures from a beautiful day, a sighting of #humpbackwhales off #andenes this summer.

Som mange andre som er nødt til å holde seg hjemme, rydder vi... i våre fotomapper. Her deler vi noen bilder fra en flott dag, en observasjon av #knølhval utenfor #andenes i sommer.

Last Friday we were so lucky to sail on a flat sea and we observed #spermwhales 4 times!
Tomorrow it's going to be windy, so we plan our next #whalesafari on Tuesday 13th October.

På fredag var vi så heldig med været...flatt hav og vi observerte #spermhvaler 4 ganger!
I morgen er det meldt vind, så vår neste #HVALSAFARI er planlagt på tirsdag, 13. oktober.

*Glenn is back!* It was a long time since we'd seen this #spermwhale, but he has actually visited the waters off #andenes for 26 years! The beautiful weather didn't hurt... ☀️

*Glenn er tilbake!* Det var en stund siden vi så denne #spermhvalen, men han har faktisk besøkt havet utenfor #andenes i hele 26 år! Det var ikke så ille med været heller... ☀️
