Wildlife on the Norwegian Coast
As a result of varied geography and climate, Norway is home to a wide range of animals - from the deepest seas to the highest mountains.
A birdwatcher's paradise
From the cliffs to the fjords, Norway is a great place to spot the diversity of bird life. Avid bird watchers who embark on Norwegian cruises will get a unique look at the avian species along the rugged coastline of the country. The island of Runde, situated just outside Torvik, is known for its teeming birdlige of more than 500,000 birds.
Vadsø is close to one of the most scenic and popular birdwatching areas in the Arctic as it sits directly under the migration path of birds flying from east to west. The advantageous biotopes combined with rich resources in the Arctic Ocean attract many species of birds in large numbers.
