Latrabjarg bird cliffs, Latrabjarg

4.5
#1 of 6 in Wildlife in Westfjords Region
Watch the birds at Latrabjarg bird cliffs, home to the largest colony of razorbills in the world. Millions of birds, including puffins, hatchlings, northern gannets, and guillemots, come here to nest on ledges below the cliffs. Hike on a trail that extends up along the cliffs for more than a mile, offering great views of the surroundings. For centuries, the cliffs were a source of seabird eggs for the local people, and this tradition goes on even today.

  • Another beauty of Iceland and this Europe's westernmost tip. Where our view extends in the immensity of the ocean. The coastline and the cliffs and overrun with thousands of Pulcinella (funny birds) which nest there. You can approach them much to photograph them.
