I don't yet guide
full time I do so whenever I have the chance, I have been
birders since I was a teenager and have a long list of satisfied
customers. I usually cover
localities within day trip range of Bergen, from the Hardangervidda
the east, Gullfjell (Bergen), Herdla (Askøy) and, of course,
Øygarden. I can also guide
Norway as required - see this
page for some ideas. For the
time being it is best to book as far
in advance as possible but trips
can also be arranged at very short notice - please do not

Norwegian fjords and choose to stay in Bergen for a day or two at the
start or end of their cruise.
There is good birding (and other wildlife!) all year round in the Bergen area and trips are
tailor made to requirements whether it be to target certain
species, have a good day out or spend time on photography.
I have started to guide nature photographers too. Again, this is a year
round activity and often good in the winter too with Otter a very

guiding, this saves quite a bit of driving and puts you on the spot as
soon as you open your eyes - the sea is at the bottom of my very small
