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.
