Owner description: Thousands of guests every summer since 1992. A large number of European seabirds breed along the coast of Northern Norway. At BirdSafari a/s in Gjesvær, North Cape you can watch Puffins, Gannets, White-tailed Eagles and other birds on a 1.5 hour boat trip to the Gjesværstappan Nature Reserve. Departures every day with large comfortable boats 1. May - 31. August. Hurtigruten, Condor Vacaciones, OAD Reizen and cruise ships are regular customers. An extraordinary nature phenomenon.

“Excellent opportunity for wildlife study”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

This trip was led by a local who has lived in the town his whole life, made his living from the sea and loves the sanctuary. The boat captain was able to bring the boat a few yards from the rocks to give an up close and personal look at the birds. The only thing we didn't like about the tour is that it had to end. Padded suits were provided so that we could spend the entire tour on a cold day on deck. Do it!

“Brilliant and well worth spending some time for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011 via mobile

Went on a roadtrip with my Land Rover 110 Defender from Liverpool to North Cape in june 2010.
Me, wife and 2 kids (3 & 4).

We loved it! Unique in great weather and stormy weather. Very close to the birds and there were eagles everywhere!

Guides were, as all northeners, friendly as can be. You feel welcome and very well looked after.

If you thinking about doing it, well don't think anymore. Just get your bum onboard and enjoy!!!

Bring your camera!!
