Norway: Practical information

 
BirdID field study in Finnmark, Norway

The trip starts at Kirkenes Airport at 11.30 on the 15th of June 2018. We will drive directly to the Pasvik Valley, and stay there for two nights. Then we drive to the Varanger Peninsula and spend the rest of the trip around there.

 

End date: 21th of june 2018.

 

Costs:
The study is free of charge. However, you have to pay €380 in advance for car rental, fuel, accommodation and the boat trip to Hornoya for the 2018 trip. 
 
 
You have to order and pay for your travel to Kirkenes and back home yourself.

 

You have to buy your own food (bread and spreads), water, juice and other liquids to be comfortable during the long birdwatching days. It is possible to buy dinner at restaurants every evening, and that will be approx 30 Euros every day. We will stay at places where it is possible to make our own dinner, and this option will be less expensive. It should be possible to spend less than 15 - 20 Euros on food each day this way.

 

Contact:

After we have received your application with the necessary information, you will be contacted by us. You will receive a bill from us for the costs mentioned above. After you have paid, you will become a participant on the gathering in your chosen year.

 

All the contact with you will thereafter be by e-mail.  Your contact person is
