In spring and summer we offer photography tours aiming for ducks and loons. Tufted ducks, pintails, shoveler, red breasted merganser, common shelduck, arctic loons, arctic terns, swans, grey heron, mallards and other ducks is present at the spots we visit. We often see owls, eagles, waders and some mammals on this tours as well.

Owls

Our owl tours run in spring and summer. We got three spieces of owl we track each year. Short eared owl, long eared owl and northern hawk owls. We see boreal owls from time to time. But their small size and and choice of living place makes them harder to find. These tours are mostly at night under the midnight sun. Late may is recommended.

Waders

Vesterålen got multiple spots for photographing waders. Most of em are easy to access. Depending on species we photograph from the car or from a blind.

Black grouse lek and other tours

We can arrange photography of a lot of species of birds.

The black grouse lek in april and june from a blind is one of our favourites.

Ruff lek in may/june.

We are building a photohide for a golden eagle pair we got on a baitingsite for foxes. Because of the awerness of the golden eagles we are still careful to have to much traffic around the hide. But can be done.

Goose hawks from a blind april until start of june.

Other raptors like merlins, buzzards and falcons are possible, but a lot of luck and patients are needed to succeed. And the places they perch is a pretty long hike from roads.

Parasitic jaegers are nesting on the islands making up Vesterålen and are keeping to one area in summer.

Contact us on mail booking@vtours.no for more info, prices and tell us wich species you are looking for.
