Book Now Inquire Booking

From NOK 575

Watch the puffins come in from the ocean for the night while you learn about the extraordinary life of the seabirds. Our nature interpreters have many stories about the seabirds and are eager to give you insight in the life of these remarkable creatures. 

The trip starts at Runde Environmental Centre where we serve local, home made seafood. Out in the ocean gap we like 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 stop at the centre, we depart for Goksøyra. You must have your own car to get to and from Runde, and it is most convenient to take the care from the Centre to the parking lot close to the hiking trails. From the parking lot at Goksøyra, the nature interpreter will take you up to the bird cliff. 

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 get 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.
