Nice tour through this part of Lofoten. Eric does his very best to make you feel comfortable and in the meantime also to learn something about birds. It was quite chilly the day of the excursion which was a shame. Nevertheless, we have seen a lot. Actually, five hours is a bit on the short side, but it was well worth it.

It was a really great tour. We were only two people and were therefore able to enjoy this individual excursion all the more. Many thanks to our extremely competent and friendly guide Maurizio
