BirdSafari - the number two attraction at Nordkapp
This is one of your once-in-a-lifetime nature opportunities. The two-hour boat tour leaves from Gjesvær to Gjesværstappan Nature Reserve, 15 km west of the Nordkapp cliff.
You will be at the Gjesværstappan 10 minutes after departure from the pier. On the way you may get into one of our arctic suits to insure a warm bird safari. Onboard you can get a cup of coffee, biscuits and souvenirs. You can move freely onboard. We will address any question you might have. Even the captain is at your disposal. Toilette facilities are onboard.
To set foot on the islands is not allowed, but from the boat you can observe one of Norway’s largest groups of puffins and kittiwakes. The puffins, easily recognisable by their colourful bill, nest in holes in the grassy hills.
The nesting period, from April to September, teems with life in the air and on land. Mighty White-tailed Eagles can be seen hovering overhead as they hunt for prey. Guillemots, Razorbills, Cormorants, Arctic Skuas, Fulmars, and Gannets are also part of the flourishing bird life at Gjesværstappan.
