Walking along the cliff with a local guide and enjoying the pristine majesty of Icelandic nature is an unforgettable adventure.
Largest seabird colony in the North Atlantic
Látrabjarg is one of the most beautiful natural sites in Iceland. It is the largest sea bird colony in the Northern Atlantic and marks the most western-point of Europe. The cliff itself is the habitat of millions of seabirds, such as puffins, razorbills, fulmars, guillemot and many more which can be seen on a walk along the top of the cliff. Látrabjarg is claimed to be the best place in the world to photograph puffins because of how close you can get to them (bird season is from middle of April until beginning of August).
Travel back in time at the Heritage museum
On the way back to Patreksfjördur we will stop at the Heritage Museum at Hnjótur. In this interesting museum we will learn how Icelandic people lived in the old days by examining the cultural values of the time and how they rescued sailors from stranded ships under the steep cliffs.
