One of natures great events – The bird jumping in Trygghamna

Tour description:

Better Moments will offer you a chance to see the biggest bird event during the summer. The bird jumping, from the nests on the huge bird cliff Alkhornet. We will be there when the chicks try their wings for the first time ever.

In the end of July the Brunnich Gillimot chicks are ready to take off for the first time. With a little help from their parents the chicks will «jump» from their nests. At the most, hundreds of birds will take off at the same time. During this event, all the predators are gathering for a «free» meal. They will catch as many chicks as possible during this jump, so they can fill up their storage for the winter. This is really a fight for survival in the arctic.

After a ride in our RIB boat, we will go ashore on the beach in Trygghamna. There will be an easy hike up to the foot of Alkhornet mountain. Here our guide will find a good spot to spend some time birdwatching.

This trip is not only for “Birders” and other wildlife enthusiasts. This trip suits everyone that enjoys spectacular nature. If you are lucky you might get to see some of the most spectacular events of the arctic summer. We will focus on photographing and good observing positions. We will also serve food and drinks during the trip.

We require a minimum of 5 persons on this trip.
