ÍS: The Cliffs at Látrabjarg

000018puffin At the very westernmost point of Iceland is Látrabjarg, an enormous bird cliff teeming with all kinds of life. It is home to puffins, guillemots, razorbills, seagulls, and more. A few hours drive from Ísafjörður, and you can peer over these cliffs into the seemingly infinite Atlantic. The air is full to bursting with the different calls of the seabirds; they swoop back and forth between the clear, blue water and their nests and burrows, seemingly oblivious to the awe-struck human visitors paying homage to this pristine natural wonderland.
