Stø is a fishing village located on the northern tip of the island of Langøya, along the Gavlfjorden. But here also new ventures have been established, both in traditional fishing industry and in tourism.Today Stø is a popular destination for caravan campers, as well as a point of departure for the whale safaris, where an encounter with the spermaceti whale in its natural habitat becomes the optimal goal. Both Nyksund and Stø are excellent vantage points for viewing the midnight sun. The atmosphere, location and architecture are the trademarks of Nyksund and Stø.

Anda Island is a nature reserve with a large population of birds and seals located approximately 5 kilometres north of the island of Langøya. Species of birds that can be spotted on the island include the white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), puffins (Fratercula arctica), cormorants (Phalacrocorax carbo), shags (Phalacrocorax aristotelis), kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla), common guillemots (Uria aalge), and razorbills (Alca torda).

Just east of Stø, however, lies a true old-fashioned fishing village, Langenes. It is difficult to imagine that this was once Vesterålens largest "city" during the Middle Ages. The information board in front of the 400-year-old Langenes Church (Vesterålen´s oldest) recounts the historical tale.
