Gjesværstappan, a birdwatcher's dream

  •  /  km From You

Apart from offering stunning photo opportunities, Gjesværstappan provides an excellent possibility to get close to one of the largest bird colonies in Europe.

Leaving from Skarsvåg - the northernmost fishing village in the world - you will pass North Cape and Knivskjellodden on the way to the famous bird islands. Here, you will be able to spot the legendary puffins, majestic sea-eagles and elegant gannets. Your guide will help you to identify the different species and point out where they are nesting. 

The RIB boat offers you a chance to get extremely close to the birds without disturbing their natural behaviour.
Don’t forget your camera!

3 reasons to book now:
- Learn to identify the different bird species with some help from your guide. Gjesværstappan is home to one of the largest bird colonies in Europe.
- By RIB boat, you will have the cache to get very close to the birds and islands. It makes the experience more personal and you will have the chance to ask your guide all you want to know about this unique nature reserve.
- Spot the legendary puffins as they try to catch fish in the waters surrounding Gjesværstappan. These clumsy little birds breed in large colonies, so chances are very real you will get to see them.
