lighthouse Runde

Lighthouse Runde in June 2005. The little tower stands at the northwestern tip of the bird island Rundøy north of Fosnavåg. To come here, there is an one-hour walk to go, the difficulty is not the horizontal distance but the differences in altitude.

During our second stay in June 2007 we also tried the way downwards to the lighthouse. There we take the following pictures. By the way, the lighthouse only shines in the time between 16th July till 21st May. The rest of the year it is daylight around the clock.

This time we also found the puffins which we missed at first time. In the surrounding of the lighthouse there weren't puffins, but in the south of the lighthouse, at the bird rock, there were many of this funny birds.
