Every spring we are looking at the nesting sites of the white-tailed eagle. We in particular want to make sure that the eagles can bring up their young ones undisturbed so it is one of our biggest concerns that we do not move into them too close. When the young ones have grown up, they are less vulnerable, so close encounters are possible and very likely. It is exciting to see the eagles grow up to the adult age and to observe their first flights.
The area has one of the largest population of white-tailed eagle.
Grey seals and harbour seals are the most common species, ringed seals and greenland-seal can be found occasionally.
The grey seal is very shy and not easy to get close to and escapes quickly when they feel threatened. The harbourseal on the other hand is very curious. In particular the young seals are curious. During June-September the area has one of Europe`s largest population of grey seals and harbour seals.
Have you seen the lights of the coast at night with all its shades? We promise to take you on an unforgettable experience.
On a night trip one can see sunset and sunrise during the same trip.
If you like you can catch the light with a camera or a brush.
Cormoarant nests and colonies can be found on distinct islets. In the same nest there can be eggs, young birds and adult birds. The already maturer youngsters are looking after the nest while the old birds search for food. Since the population is highly increasing, one can hunt cormorants from 1st october until 30th november.
It takes one hour with a speed boat to reach one of the many oil platforms. It is allowed to get whithin 500 meters from the platforms.
On an uninhabited island, you can stay in a Lavu, which is a traditional norwegian tent of the Sami-population. You will be alone with only the natural sounds and the power of nature!
Our Lavu was set up on Einbur Island.
It is beautifully located in the landscape and is ideal for seal and bird observation.
Besides the proximity, you can find mussels and cockles on the shore nearby.
