BIRDWATCHERS PARADISE

Birding Varanger

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 spcies 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 seaducks concentrate in huge rafts, and a night the Aurora Borealis completes the experience.

At the northern edge of Europe, further east than Istanbul, the Gulf stream keeps the Varanger fjord ice free. It is the only fjord in Norway facing the east, and the shallow waters provide feeding grounds for great numbers of birds.
