Puffinsafari with natureguide and seafood by the ocean

Join a magical experience out in the ocean gap. Natureguides Martin or Louise will take you up to the bird cliff and here you are likely to see the puffin bird coming in from the sea at sunset. The trip starts at Runde Environmental Centre with home-made fish soup. There is an own menu prepared for the children with fish cakes and mashed potatoes. Out here in the ocean gap we are happy to serve fish various forms. There will be more fish when the documentary "The Silver of the Sea" is shown. See the exciting story of mighty ocean currents, herring and seabirds at Runde. After the film, we depart for Goksøyra. You must have your own car to get to and from Runde and on to the departure city for the walk up the bird cliff. From the parking place at Goksøyra, the nature guide will take you up the mountain cliff. There is no guarantee, but if you are lucky, you can see the puffin that comes in from the sea and gets ready for the evening. In the breeding season between April and August you can see several thousand puffins on the west side of the island. They spend most of the day on the sea and gets up in the nests some hours before the sun goes down. Perhaps you are lucky to get a close look at the charming little Atlantic puffin. We look forward to see you.
