Bird Safari

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $288.67 AUD / Adult
Embark on an adventurous fjord safari to Fuglefjellet, or Bird Mountain. Meet your guide at the nearby harbor, receive your floatable suit and life vest, and then board the RIB boat. Zip out into the cool waters, feeling the fresh breeze on your face until you arrive to Bird Mountain, with steep walls emerging from the open water. You may see the puffin, little auk, black guillemot, seagulls, black auk, and more of the thousands of birds who nest here, particularly during the summer. Admire the green color of the mountain unlike any others in the area, and hear the “music” of the seabirds inhabiting the mountain. From a distance, you might see Grumant, an abandoned soviet Russian settlement, where only approximately 1,200 people were living, until it was abandoned in the 1960s. Then, zoom your way back to the harbor at high speeds for a thrill before your return.
  • Enjoy the rush of zipping through the waters onboard your high-speed, inflated RIB boat, feeling the refreshing cold wind on your face.
  • Stop to see the incredible site of thousands of birds on Fuglefjellet, also known as Bird Mountain, hear them sing, and observe their habits.
  • Admire the natural scenery around you, including snowy white mountains surrounding the icy cold waters and keep your eye out for wildlife.
