Finding Guide=A guide to the best birdwatching locations
For the first time ever, here is a guide to the birdwatching sites of Norway, including the arctic archipelago of Svalbard (Spitsbergen). More than 350 sites are covered with detailed maps and descriptions on what to see, when to go and how to get there on your own. The book includes famous places such as Finnmark, Varanger, Pasvik, Lofoten, Utsira, Lista and Jćren, and shows you many of the best birds near cities such as Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger and Tromso.

The book explains:

  • Where and when to go
  • What weather you should hope for
  • What species you may find
  • The best tactics to approach each site
  • Other animals you may encounter
  • Din Tur’s photo hides, guided tours and accommodation

'This book really is essential!' 'The quality and detail contained in this book is truly outstanding.' 'The photographs ... are truly magnificent' (excerpts from a review in Birding World Magazine 25, p. 175).

Our Opinion: This guide is packed with information, heavily illustrated with color photos and multi-colored maps. A thumbnail map on every single page reminds you in what region of Norway this site is located, and multicolored, heavily notated maps are included for every area and many individual sites, plus overview maps for each region show roads, airports, and important details. Each site lists GPS coordinates, description, notable species, directions, tactics, other wildlife, best season, visitor restrictions, and lots of tips and suggested websites. It also includes a list of common bird species, and a list of selected, sought-after species, with suggestions on where, when, and how they can be found, plus a complete site index.
