Norway, Pasvik

Pasvik Valley is located between Finland and Russia in the most eastern part of Norway. This area is renowned for its amazing wildlife. Our goal was to see owls, specifically Great Greys and Hawk. ‘Mr Pasvik’ or Ben-Arne Sotkajærvi, was our reliable guide who monitors the birdlife in the area. 2019 has been a great year for owls with Pasvik having up to 4-6 Great Grey Owls.
