A Film to inspire and awe- Gjesværstappan!

Gjesværstappan is one of Norway’s “naturperler”, directly translated, “nature’s pearls”.   This group of islands off the coast of Magerøya in the North Cape, is a natural nature reserve and home to millions of seabirds from the months of April to August/September each year.

Gjesvaer, North Cape, Norway

This past Sunday a documentary was aired which featured this extraordinary part of the world.  Here’s the link to the film.  It is in Norwegian, but the filming of the spectacular wildlife and nature speaks for itself.  I highly recommend taking a peek.

If you aren’t able to open the link you can click on my post From Puffins to Cormorants.  A little glimse into my famly’s bird safari adventure.  On April 14, of 2013, wehad the privilege of watching 1 million puffins arrive in the North Cape.  That’s right, all on the same day!  Amazing!

So if you’re planning a trip to the North Cape in 2014, put Gjesvær and Gjesværstappan on your “must do” list.

    Dessverre har NRK ikke rettigheter å vise denne filmen på utlandet. 😦 Jeg ønsker deg og familien din en riktig godt nyttår.

    I’ve enjoyed a couple of the Norske naturperler programs on NRK but hadn’t had time to look for them online – thanks for this post!
