Runde lies on an isolated island out at sea, in the commune of Herøy. This is
Norway's most south lying and and less in hostile bird mountain. The
mountain raises from the sea 300 m up to the sky. Several hundreds and thousands
of birds nest here: Atlantic Puffin, Kittiwake,
Alcids, Thick-billed Murre, Common Murre, Shag, Artic Petrel and Gannets. There
are all together over
220 species observed.
If you visit the bird mountain while the birds
are nesting (spring and early summer), you will experience hundreds of thousands
of birds flying around. It is an amazing sight. The landscape on the island has
low vegetation, and there are walking paths that makes visiting easier.
