Play golf on the coast, under the midnight sun

Playing golf at night, here in Vesterålen, is a dream of an experience. With 24 hours daylight in the middle of summer, the courses remain open 24/7. Here in the north the season is short, opening in May/June (depending on the snow melting) and closing in September/October.

The golf courses in northern Norway are said to rank amongst the most beautiful in the world, lying between the ocean, the fjords and the mountains. There are 2 short courses in Vesterålen, one in the south east, just outside Sortland and one at Bleik, beside the National Tourist Route on the outer side of Andøya. 

Bleik Golfstrømbane

"The hidden gem of Norway" - quote from the magazine Norwegian Golf 

Our local sports club Høken is building a 9-hole links golf course in spectacular surroundings between sea and mountain at Bleik, Andøya. In summer time we can play golf all night through in the light from the midnight sun. The Gulf Stream gives us a mild climate, and therefore the golf season can be pretty long.

DISTANCES:Walking distance to the center of Bleik with shop, café, activities and accommodation.Two kilometers to Andøya Space Center and Spaceship AuroraTen minutes by car to the airport (Andøya Lufthavn).
