Bird life in Lofoten is among the most abundant in Norway. Particularly impressive are the vast seabird colonies on the islands of Værøy and Røst, but in other parts of Lofoten, too, you will find many interesting locations well-suited to the study birds.
There are cormorant colonies all along the Lofoten wall, and in the spacious wetlands of Vestvågøy you can see ducks and waders at close quarters. In the winter, such rare species as the yellow-billed diver and great northern diver can be seen on the far side of the islands. White-tailed eagles are an everyday occurrence throughout the whole of Lofoten.
Several businesses offer birdwatching safaris in Lofoten.
