Arctic Birdwatching with RIB

Pukka Travels

This tour is conducted by Pukka Travels. The Arctic summer is full of life, and the best way to explore is by joining a ride along the coast.
This tour will take you to see one of Norway's most important bird mountains, by the nature reserve at Sørfugløya, located about an hour by RIB from central Tromsø.

We meet up at the Pukka basecamp, where your skipper and guide will take care of you. After a few minutes' walk to the harbor, we board the RIB, and the tour takes off! It's a thrilling feeling to fly across the water at speeds of up to 45 knots! As we navigate, your will learn about the nature in the area and enjoy some amazing sightseeing. High mountaintops rise majestically from the sea, and we pass several islands of the region as we navigate towards our goal. The marine wildlife is thriving, and if you're alert, you may be lucky to spot seals, eagles and even porpoises along the way. After about an hour of navigation, we reach Sørfugløya, where we drop anchor for some great bird watching. You'll be on the front row with puffins, guillemots, razorbills and other fascinating species right in front of you. We watch, learn, take photos and soak up the environment.

After about an hour of bird watching, we head back towards Tromsø where you will be invited for coffee, tea and something sweet in the lounge at the Pukka basecamp – a nice way to finish off the birdwatching adventure.
