Latrabjarg hiking

Iceland nature tours

Highlights

Walking along the cliff with a local guide and enjoying the pristine majesty of Icelandic nature is an unforgettable adventure.

minimum 2 people

Latrabjarg 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.  Latrabjarg 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).

On the way back to Patreksfjordur we will stop at the Heritage Museum at Hnjotur. 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.

Season:
15 April – 1 September

Advisable to wear comfortable warm clothing. We recommend that you bring a backpack and water bottle. Please wear hiking boots.
