Explore Salten's sea eagle safari is suitable for everyone. It is an exiting adventure for families, groups of friends or even corporate parties in need of a bream from their daily routines. The trip lasts for about an hour, and is a perfect activity while stopping in Bodø with Hurtigruten.
Departures start from the marina near Stormen Library, daily at 13 p.m. Please assemble 15–20 minutes prior to departure.
Sea eagle – our biggest bird of prey
With a weight on up to 8 kilos and a wing span of up to 2.25 metres, the white-tailed eagle is our biggest bird of prey. The females are considerably bigger than the males (about 2 kilos heavier), but large males may be as big as smalles females. In Norway, the sea eagle has been protected by law since 1968.
Nordland is the country's major sea eagle county, accomodating probably over 35% of the country's stocks, thus almost 20% of the global white-tailed eagle population, and Bodø and the Salten Region are the core areas.
Watch the Sea Eagle up close
Even though the stock in Bodø is large, the sea eagle is a wild creature and we cannot know for sure if it shows up. We will therefore bring along a little snack the eagles are fond of, to entice them.
