Varanger is the world’s easiest accessible arctic birding destination. In Varanger you have the northern taiga, tundra and arctic coastline in one destination.
Within a day’s drive, you can experience the pine grosbeaks in the taiga, and see a wide variety of species on the tundra of the Varanger peninsula. At the coastal bird cliffs, the arctic species Bünnichs Guillemot is accompanied by a hundred thousand seabirds. The summer is a hectic season with 24-hour daylight and birds in beautiful breeding plumage.
In winter and early spring arctic sea ducks concentrate in huge rafts, and at night the Aurora Borealis completes the experience. Arctic birdlife is a unique and fascinating phenomenon and you can come together with us on a birdwatching safari.
