Round trip to Runde Bird Island

From NOK 530

Ålesund - Hareid - Runde - Ålesund

This tour by fast-speed ferry and bus takes you from Ålesund via Hareid and Fosnavåg to the bird island of Runde.

The island is a popular destination all year round but is spectacular in the summer due to its teeming bird-life. Between 500,000 and 700,000 sea birds inhabit the island in the season, most of them in the cliffs. The island also offers great hiking.

The island is a popular destination all year round but is particularly exciting in the summer due to the buzzing birdlife. Runde is located at the end of the sea gap with about 150 permanent residents.

In the season there are between 500,000 and 700,000 seabirds on the island, most of them live on the bird mountain. Around 80 species have been found breeding, and more than 230 species have been registered on the Bird island.

The bird mountain is the southernmost in Norway and is the most species-rich seabird in the country. Birdlife is active year-round on the island, and in winter you can study the harshest species, which thrive in the harsh and wild climate.

About our trips

This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)

Tours are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the tour is bookable.
