The Company

BirdSafari AS

The Gjesværstappan has been an important part of my life ever since I was a young boy. One of the small islands, the Kirkestappen, has been a family property for a long time. As a teenager in 1975, I brought my first tourist to the Gjesværstappan with my small boat.

Tourism became our livelihood more than a decade later. We started to offer regular boat excursions to the Gjesværstappan Nature Reserve in 1992. The extraordinary bird life at the reserve has since then become the number two attraction at Nordkapp. We have been pioneers in the ecological tourist industry in Scandinavia. We were one of the first businesses to offer excursions into the wild without endangering the environment.

Today, we cooperate with a number of the largest tour operators in Europe. Our goal is to offer you an unforgettable nature experience.
