Experience Runde is a part of Runde Environmental Center

Lundesafari with transportation from Ålesund

Join us on an evening trip from Ålesund to Runde!

Join us for a magical experience where the land meets the open sea. On an evening tour to the bird cliffs, you'll get up close to the puffin. Our nature interpreter will provide you with insights into the unique lives of the seabirds, local history of the island, and the story of a genuine treasure from the shipwreck of Akerendam off Runde in 1725.

You travel by express boat and bus to Runde Environmental Center. There, you will be greeted by a skilled nature guide, who will provide a tour of our exhibition, followed by the film "Havets sølv," a fantastic nature documentary about the puffins and the ecosystem they are part of here at Runde. The tour is followed by dinner before we head up to the bird cliffs.<br>

The hike up to the bird cliffs takes 45 minutes. Along the way, there is plenty to see and experience, so we will make several stops. Once we reach the bird cliffs, there will be plenty of time to sit and enjoy the view and the fantastic seabirds.

If you're lucky, you'll end the trip with the sun setting into the sea while puffins swarm in the air above your head.

After the tour, the bus will take you safely back to the speedboat dock, to return to Ålesund.
