The white-tailed eagle was made to make an impression. With a wing span of 2.5 metres, an almost over-dimensioned bill and powerful talons, it is simply awe-inspiring. But then it is a giant. Not because it can lift so much, not because it can kill livestock. But because it is biggest and strongest - and so incredibly beautiful.
- Frank A. Jenssen

The white-tailed eagle was made to make an impression.

The white-tailed eagle, or sea eagle, the Ruler of the Skies. With a wing span of 2.5 metres and weighing in at about 6 kg, this is Norway’s biggest bird. In the county of Nordland, and particularly in Helgeland, Salten and Lofoten, we find the world’s biggest stock of white-tailed eagles. The white-tailed eagle was protected by law in 1968, after having been persecuted by Man for hundreds of years.

A sea eagle safari is without doubt an exciting trip, offering an excellent chance of seeing white-tailed eagles at close quarters. A camera is a must!

There is also a very good chance of seeing grey seals on these trips. These animals can weigh up to 300 kg and reach up to 3 metres in length. If we are lucky there may also be a chance of seeing minke whales, porpoises, killer whales or basking sharks.

On these trips you also have a unique opportunity of enjoying the rugged coastal landscape, and will also get to see >Mount Vågakallen at close quarters, one of the tallest mountains in Lofoten.

We offer daily departures from Henningsvær.

You will need: Good footwear, a sweater, and preferably a windcheater, gloves, scarf and woollen hat. It might also be a good idea to bring along a waterproof bag for your camera.
Our trips include the following: Wind and waterproof floatation suits. We also provide a safety briefing prior to departure
