One of our friendly local tour guides will meet us as we disembark the ferry and take us around the island, teaching us about the unique local culture and the many amazing bird species that call the island home. It begins with a traditional local lunch in the main town, before we head out into the unknown in search of the best birdwatching spots on the island. This includes the nesting grounds of the adorable puffin, whose monogamy and cute features have made them a firm favorite with people around the world. Our guide will also tell us all about the many strange traditions and amazing local culture that has developed on the island.
