Group of rocky islets NW of fishing village of Gjesvaer, accessed by boat. Breeding cliffs for Tordalk and many other seabirds and frequented by Seeadler.
Gjesværstappan is a group of high, steep-sided, grass-covered islands 15 km west of the Nordkapp cliff. The islands contain a large colony of seabirds and have been designated a nature reserve since 1983. The largest colonies of cliff-breeding seabirds are mainly located on the bird cliffs of the biggest island, Storstappen, and between June 15 and August 15 visitors are not allowed to set foot on this island. The amount of nesting birds is impressing: about 70 pairs of Kormoran; around 50 pairs of Krähenscharbe; 5000 to 10,000 pairs of Dreizehenmöwe ; about 600 pairs of Trottellumme; 25 pairs of Dickschnabellumme; about 2500 pairs of Tordalk; and about 50,000 pairs of Papageitaucher. Also some Basstölpel nest here. The islands are best visited May to August. Other birds you can see are Gryllteiste, Krabbentaucher and Seeadler.
Road to Gjesvaer, then boat. (Same island as Nordkapp. Nearest port and airport is Honningsvåg). A two-hour boat tour leaves from Gjesvær to Gjesværstappan Nature Reserve.
