On this tour we travel to the small fishing village of Gjesvær. Along the way we will
receive an introduction to the local flora and fauna, before visiting
one of the world’s most exciting nature reserves, Gjesværstappan. From
the vessel we can study Finnmark’s largest flock of puffins, together
with large numbers of kittiwakes.
Visit one of the world's most exciting nature reserves
During the nesting season this area teems with life as mighty sea
eagles hover above in search of prey, while guillemots, razorbills,
cormorants, Arctic skuas,
northern fulmars, Brünnich’s guillemots,
and the large northern gannet fill the air with a cacophony of shrieks
and screeches. In the autumn you can also catch a glimpse of Europe’s
smallest seabird, the British storm-petrel.
