Norway: Information about the areas

PASVIK

This is a valley to the south of Kirkenes. It is about 100 km long. In the southernmost part of the valley, the Norwegian, Finnish and Russian borders meet.
The area is dominated by pine forest and some wetlands. The pine forest is home for Brown Bears, Spotted Redshanks, Arctic Warblers, Siberian Jays, Siberian Tits, Smews, Pine Grosbeaks and other north-eastern specialities.

VARANGER

We will visit a lot of places at the southeastern coasts of the Varanger peninsula.  We will see good numbers of Shore Larks, Red-throated Pipits, Red-necked Phalaropes, gulls, skuas and terns.
At Hornøya Island there are a lot of Kittiwakes, Common- and Brunnich`s Guillemots, Puffins and other seabirds.
King- and Stellers eider could also be found here.
Some years it can be possible to find Snowy Owls at Varanger.
This area is very popular among birdwatchers, and almost every year some rarities are located in this area. Hopefully there are something rare here even this year.
