Smelly brown bags

Walruses on Moffen

The easiest place to see Walruses on land is on the island Moffen. Here there are almost always between 50 and 100 Walruses hauling out. The only problem is that it’s a nature reserve (in order to protect Walruses) and you’re not allowed to come any closer as 300m. At this distance the group of Walruses resembles a pile of brown bags. Smelly brown bags that is, as even at this distance we could easily smell them….
