Introduction

 

 

Great Grey Owl

 
Arctic magic awaits us as we head to the far north of Europe and the Lands of the Midnight Sun. The long hours of daylight are used to maximise our chances of seeing the many special birds of this beautiful, tranquil area. A wide variety of habitats will be visited including the forests, lakes and bogs of Finland and the tundra and coastline of northern Norway. The terrain is mostly easy but will involve one or two steep uphill climbs, so a reasonable level of fitness is required for this tour. The weather conditions on the arctic coast of Norway may be harsh, so all your warmest winter clothes are highly recommended! Walks are short and much of the birding is done from the roadside or from tower hides. There is so much to see that the birding is intense and long hours are spent in the field- this is the only way to get the most out of such a bird rich destination. Walks are short and much of the birding is done from the roadside or from tower hides. Mammals likely to be seen are Moose, Arctic Hare, Reindeer and Red Squirrel and although scarce and elusive there is an outside chance of Brown Bear, Lynx, Timber Wolf, Beluga and even Killer Whale. The tour will be led by Ari Latja or another Finnature guide who will be assisted by another Oriole Birding leader should numbers dictate. You can expect to see 175 + species.
