BIRD WATCHING - puffins and more
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, preserving their eggs, feeding their young ones and finally coaching them to fly and coping with the real world. Daylight is up to 24 hours in the summer, so you will have plenty of time to devote for sheer enjoyable bird watching 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. Why? Because the puffins haven't been hunted there for decades, which make the puffins more relaxed towards humans. Many other species are found in Látrabjarg cliff such as razorbills, the Brunnich’s and Common guillemots, fulmars, kittiwakes, cormorants and shags, just to name a few. The local guide will take you to the best places in the neighboring area to watch and photograph species, that you would hardly find on your own, such as the White Tailed Eagle, Gyrfalcons, Great Northern Divers, Red-throated Divers, the Common Loon, etc. Westfjords Adventures offers both private individual and group tours. Flexible hours - unforgettable experience.
