“Breathtaking scenery”

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2017 via mobile

When we arrived, we didn't feel like this place is so fascinating, but when we started to walk up and up, it was getting better and better. At the end, we really loved it and enjoyed it a lot. It is probably the best plce in whole Westfjords.
❗️TIP: If you can, go there before mid-August, because by that time most of the birds are leaving. We were there at the end of August and I felt a bit sorry about that.

The drive is long, bumpy, and winding. It is also beautiful, inspiring, and peaceful. It is doable in a 2WD, not paved but not potholed either. There's a bathroom a short distance before the cliffs.

We spent about an hour at the bird cliffs. There's a path of sorts to get to different cliffs. It appeared we could have walked much farther. We saw so many birds, and just enjoyed standing and watching them. We visited the first week in August, and there were some puffins though not too many. Be careful not to get too close to the edge.

This was my favorite activity in Iceland. I was looking forward to being able to view the puffins from close up and was not disappointed! Puffins galore and they are truly magnificent to observe. Plenty of variety as well- razor bills, kittywakes, puffins, fulmor- such a wonderful place to watch birds. The cliffs made a wonderful place to walk.

This is one of the biggest and most breathtaking bird cliffs in Iceland!! In early summer there are a million different types of birds, including the puffin. If you want to see the puffin, you need to know they are gone by mid August. We just missed them but the hike up was well worth it and there are still lots of Arctic terns swooping and nesting on the cliffs.

The drive is long and sometimes treacherous but beautiful. Despite reading that puffins hang out until end of August, it's not the case. When we arrived at the Breidavick guesthouse they said see them from 8-10pm. We went and later learned all the puffins left last week. Nobody we talked to at the hotel or while hiking saw any puffins. Very disappointing after such a long drive.
