Tromsø is on an island surrounded by hundreds of other islands so what better way to go sightseeing than on a boat. Just north of Tromsø is the community of Karlsøy, which has a rich bird life. To get here, drive to Hansnes about one hour north of Tromsø on Road 863; if you don’t have a car you can take bus number 6 or 7 from Tromsø. From Hansnes, a boat takes you out to the island of Fugløya (bird island) and other islands in the area. Here you’ll find the biggest colonies of white-tailed eagles and puffins in Europe as well as an abundance of many other birds typical of this region.
