Bird Watching Tours
The bird watching season in the Westfjords of Iceland begins in April, with May and June offering the best opportunity of seeing the widest variety of species. Throughout the season you see the birds arriving and settling, nesting (preparing and building the nests), preserving their eggs, feeding the baby birds and finally coach them for flying and coping with the real world. Daylight is long at this time of year, up to 24 hours, so you will have plenty of time to devote for sheer enjoyable birdwatching at different stages of the season.
Látrabjarg is the largest seabird colony in the Northern Atlantic. It is claimed to be the best place in the world to photograph puffins.
