The unique excursion tour with a local guide to Westfjords' top two nature attractions and most amazing natural wonders.
Visit the Western-most point of Europe and walk on the edges of Látrabjarg, Europe’s largest bird cliff. Enjoy the amazing birdlife and incredible nature, soon to be a Nature Reserve. The stillness and pristine beauty of Rauðasandur is one of Iceland’s best kept secrets. Enjoy the impressive diversity of natural wonders and unspoiled nature. Unsurpassable and “must see” sites, which will leave unforgettable memories.
Látrabjarg is the largest seabird colony in the Northern Atlantic. Walking on the edge of the 440m high cliff and enjoying the majestic pristine Icelandic nature, is an unforgettable adventure. The best place in the world to photograph puffins, as they enjoy posing for photographers during the bird season (April-July). Please note that the birds have usually migrated from early August to mid August.
Rauðasandur is Iceland’s most famous beach, red coloured in a beautiful setting amidst black cliffs and blue ocean. It’s a wonderful place to fill your soul and camera with memories. We visit Hnjótur heritage museum to learn how people lived in the old days and rescued seamen from stranding ships under the cliff. Light lunch optional.
The hassle free excursion to the most amazing natural wonders. Leave the car behind, the roads can be tough and too challenging to fully enjoy the majestic scenery while driving. We make frequent stops for photographing and enjoying the characteristics of this area, white sandy beaches in different shadings and turquoise colour ocean.
