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. Runde is located right at next to the ocean 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 area in the country. There is an active birdlife all year on the island, and in the winter you can study the toughest species, which thrive in the harsh and wild climate.
It is also possible to see the colonies by hiking up the mountains along marked paths. It is important to remember that conservation regulations apply due to the vulnerable nature.
The area is fantastic for diving and fishing, and also offer great opportunities for hiking.
