The Varanger Peninsula is a wonderful destination for bird watchers. To further increase accessibility for birders, the national park has created the Komagdalen Bird Trail. The clear trail is also an easy way to get a taste of Varangerhalvøya National Park, starting at the park’s eastern edge and leading in towards the Komagelva River.
The area is home to a mix of species common elsewhere and those more common to Finnmark. There are 5 signs along the path highlighting birds you are likely to spot.
A brochure from the national park has more information about the local birdlife.
