Sightseeing trips

Sightseeing, Birdwatching and Wildlife watching opportunities by boat

During the summer we offer a number of boat trips that provide you with opportunities to see the spectacular landscape, wildlife and bird-life of Arctic Varanger.

Sightseeing trip - Hornøya and Reinøya

Our trip takes you on an enjoyable trip around Hornøya and Reinøya, where you will get an opportunity to see the amazing wild island of Hornøya, inhabited by 80 000 sea birds. We hope that you will also get an opportunity to see the Grey seal colony on Reinøya. Be sure to bring your camera as there are many great photo opportunities to be had on our trips. Depending on the season, whilst out on tour with us you will also have an opportunity to see, Common Guillemots, King Eider, Steller's Eider, Puffins, Arctic Skua, Grey Seals, Porpoises, Orcas and Humpback whales.
