Address: Nygårdsveien 38, 9765 Gjesvær

Several thousand guests every year since 1992

There are three reasons that make BirdSafari a/s the best place for you to watch many different European seabirds (Puffins, Gannets, Cormorants, White-tailed Eagles etc.) in large numbers:

1. The ocean currents and the water temperature make the area in the county of Finnmark a good place for fry, capelin and other small fish. Therefore, a great place for the birds to find food for their chicks.

2. The Midnight Sun, north of the Arctic Circle: The birds can feed their chicks 24 hours every day. The faster the offspring can defend itself, the better.

3. The bird rocks are only 5 – 10 minutes from Gjesvær (North Cape), a small fishing village. BirdSafari a/s has made the nature reserve available for you - rain or shine - since 1992.

A large number of European seabirds breed along the coast of Northern Norway. The birdlife at Gjesværstappn Nature Reserve is therefore an attraction for most Europeans. You don’t have to be a bird-watcher to enjoy our relaxing and comfortable safaris.

Many tour operators have included BirdSafari a/s on their program in northern Scandinavia. You can also book BirdSafari a/s if you are traveling with Hurtigruten.

Our information-packed website is available in Russian, Polish, Dutch, Spanish, Finnish, Italian, French, German, English and Norwegian.

Welcome to an unforgettable nature experience!
