Owner description: Hornoya is the eastermost protected nature reserve in Norway. Here you can go ashore and experience a plentiful bird life up close. The island has one of the largest seabird colonies in Norway, including Razorbill, Atlantic puffin, European shag, Common guillemot, Brünnich's guillemot, Black-legged kittiwake, Great black-backed gull and Herring gull. Vardo Harbour offers transportation by boat. The passage from Vardo to Hornoya takes about 10 minutes.

The small island Hornoya is easly reached from Vardo harbour by a short boat trip. Hornoya is renown for the massive amount of breeding seabirds, like Puffins, Guillemots and other Auks, Gulls, Skuas etc. The birds aren't shy at all and can be seen close up. The sight of the huge number of breeding birds in the cliffs is very impressive. A trip to Hornoya is a must for all nature enthusiasts visiting the area.
