Vadsø is a big draw for birdwatchers, especially in early summer when they come to see Steller's eider; one even stayed for the 2017 summer. Vadsø Fjordhotell is the place to start for birders – the knowledgeable staff are all over recent sightings and have plenty of useful brochures. Arntzen Arctic Adventures is also excellent, and has its own hides and bird park.
