Birdwatching in Runde
Runde is probably the most famous bird cliff in Norway, competing only with Hornøya. The great advantage with Runde is the accessibility. The island is located just outside of Norway’s north-western coast, and there is a road leading there. Additionally, there are many places to park your car.
Runde—a Real Beauty Spot
Nobody would object to describing Runde as a real beauty spot. The island actually resembles a miniature version of the Faroe Islands, with steep cliffs and grassy plateaus. In the breeding season, you will find most of the typical mountain species in Runde, although some stocks over time have disappeared or been reduced. A total of 230 different bird species have been registered in Runde.
