Seal Colony at Rauðasandur
Rauðasandur is one of the most spectacular sites of Iceland, surrounded by magnificent landscape; red coloured sand in beautiful settings of black cliffs and the blue Atlantic Ocean.
Our local guide will either take you by a tractor carriage or take a hike to a seal colony where harbour seals are often seen at a close range. More than 100 seals take advantage of the sun and sand at Rauðasandur, sunbathing and resting on the beach. In early summer, seal-mothers lie on the sand with their young. Later in the summer, you can watch as the pups take their first steps to adulthood.
Both the hike and a ride on a tractor carriage on the sand with our expert guide is a true adventure.
A local farmer takes the tractor along the sandy beach to the seal colony. We go carefully as we try not to disturb the wild animals. Due to their curiosity, you can expect to get good pictures of these beautiful animals in the picturesque landscape of Rauðasandur.
