Indulge your inner naturalist with this breathtaking half-day, moderately active, guided bird-watching excursion. As you traverse Magerøya Island with motorcoach, have your cameras at the ready for the opportunity to photograph the domesticated reindeer that graze here. Then journey to the quaint fishing village of Gjesvær and board a boat for an invigorating cruise to the Stappen Islands for a thrilling hour and a half of bird watching. Bring binoculars and keep a keen eye out for the millions of seabirds that come to this coast to breed! Among them are over 800.000 puffins, a large colony of sea eagles, cormorants, razorbills, guillemots, black-legged Kittiwakes, European shag and northern gannets. Enjoy the sea breeze as you take in the beauty of the islands and their spectacular array of winged wildlife before re-boarding your motorcoach for a relaxing return trip to your Princess ship.

Special Notes:

Dress appropriately; wear non-slip, low-heeled shoes, and either wear or bring a waterproof jacket. Bring along binoculars to enhance your bird-watching experience.

The birdlife is under protection; the boat's skipper may only approach at a certain distance.
