Bird Safari

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £219.96 GBP / Adult
Embark on a birdwatching safari that ventures into the reaches of the Arctic to the island sanctuary of Gjesvaerstappan. Begin with a drive to the fishing village of Gjesvaer, where the day’s catch brings in fresh cod, halibut and coalfish. Along the way, your local guide will talk about the hearty flora and fauna you’ll find thriving in these northernmost reaches of Europe. Arrive in town and board a local boat for the voyage to Gjesvaerstappan, a national preserve that’s home to hundreds of thousands of birds living free from the trappings of civilization. As your captain navigates close to the island, watch for vibrantly billed puffins, snowy kittiwakes, black-and-white razorbills and plenty of other species. The trip out and back takes roughly 1.5-hours. Rest assured, when you’re not spotting exotic birds, you’ll be soaking up the beauty and serenity of sailing atop Norway’s crisp blue sea.
