Mid-summer in eastern Finnmark


Eastern Finnmark is probably the most exotic birding area you will find in Norway, ranging from the tundra of the Varanger Peninsula to the taiga forests of the Pasvik Valley. We can tailor your birding-trip in the region after your preferences!

The region has a lot to offer through spring, but to catch up with the latest migrants, the last half of June is recommended. After that mosquitos can be a severe challenge! 
In Pasvik we will find species like Capercaillie, Taiga Bean Goose, Smew, Little Gull, Northern Hawk Owl, Short-eared Owl, Three-toed Woodpecker, Siberian Jay, Siberian Tit, Arctic Warbler, Common Redstart, Pine Grossbeak and Little Bunting. 

On the Varanger Peninsula we will focus on Tundra Bean Goose, Rough-legged Buzzard, Gyrfalcon, Thick-billed Murre, Long-tailed Jaeger, Ruff, Red-necked Phalarope, Little Stint, Temminck’s Stint, Horned Lark, Bluethroat, Red-throated Pipit and Arctic Redpoll.
