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.

And since 1989, cooperation with scientists is an important - and exciting -part of our activities.

Ser dere noe til spekkhoggere på denne tiden? ☺️🐳

At sea, at last! 🥰 Today we had our first #whalesafari this year!
And see, our old friend Quasimodo, a #spermwhale that we've seen here since 2002, was the first we met over Bleik Canyon.

Es war super bei euch

#Spermwhales have the largest head in the animal kingdom - up to a third of their body length, so over 5 m in adult males!!! 🐳
What's the purpose?
it's basically their nose that's really massive, and it's especially evolved to produce powerful sounds.
....Just imagine the sneeze! 🤧 😄

The Arctic fox is one of the most endangered mammals in mainland Norway, confined to the highest mountain areas and facing many threats from climate change. The population is so small that it is entirely dependent on conservation measures for its long-term survival. #EndangeredSpeciesDay #CelebrateWildlife ... See MoreSee Less

It is a #ThrowbackThursday if it just happened? 😅 Last night, we had our last sunset until the 24th of July! We look forward to another "night" like this!

#DidYouKnow that in all cetaceans breathing is voluntary, not automatic? 🐬 🐋 🐳
By default, their blowholes are closed! So when they need air, they have to come up to the surface and consciously open the blowhole(s) to breathe!

#TBT sometimes we meet again a #spermwhale after many years, and we can still recognize the animal from its fluke, 🕵️. Like this one, who made comeback after several years' absence.
We are so looking forward to going to sea again!

Show me your eye-patch and I'll tell you where you come from! 🐬🐼
#orcas' typical white patch behind their eyes can be used to distinguish different populations or ecotypes, but also to identify them individually!

#TBT Have you seen this boat somewhere?
Our lovely M/S "Reine" served local routes in Lofoten and #Vesterålen and as a fishing boat before she got totally renovated and became our main #whalesafari boat.
Then she was also equipped with 👂 (hydrophones) to pick up whale sounds 🎶🐳

Speaking of #humpback whales...these gentle giants have many endearing features, but their smelly breath is not one of them... 🤢 😦 Trust us, we've been downwind of them a few times! 😅
Described as "blunt and pungent ... an unholy mingling of fart and fishiness" - scientist still aren't quite sure why!
