Brief stop in Harstad

I will be on the Hurtigruten in late May and see that there is a stop scheduled for early morning in Harstad. Is there an interesting walk that will take less than an hour? It seems highly unlikely that shops and tourist sights will be open at 6:45.

Quite a pleasant little town centre (possibly marred by litter from previous night's revellers) to wander around right by the Hurtigruten quay. Things will be firmly shut. Worth getting into breakfast early as the bit after Harstad (especially northbound) is good.

When you return to your northbound ship after your walk, stay around on deck to watch the arrival of the southbound Hurtigruten. It’s due to arrive in Harstad at 0800, just as you depart. Great photo opportunity. Then a few minutes after you depart there is a good view from your ship of the church at Trondenes with the mountains behind. Then I’d head for breakfast!
