The road to Hoyholmen passes good habitat on both sides of the road

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in Lapland’

The scenery along Tanafjord is magnificent. The famous Gyrfalcon site is on the cliffs to the right (in shadow) will at least see the white droppings around the traditional (old?) Gyrfalcon nest

If you park at the place described in the book...

Look how corrugated the road to Hoyholmen is. But you get great views over pools and lagoons which can be good for waders and geese, including Lesser Whitefronts.
