“Worth A Visit If You Have Time”

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 April 2018

I didn't really know what to expect, puffins were tops for one of my friends. It was a stunning drive out there and the views and surrounds fantastic. It was great fun seeing all the puffins, they just stand there near their burrows and look at you all cute. It was almost equally enjoyable seeing everyone try and take photos with the little guys because, since they burrow under the grass at the cliff's edge, you have to lay flat to inch out near where they reside.

The scale of birds is impressive the and surroundings way up in the Westfjords unforgettable. Make the trip if you can.

The journey to Latrabjarg along the scenic Westfjords coastal roads is itself so mesmerizing. The many jagged seashores provide nice driving experience. The view is superb and we even manage to sight a whale in the bay. We have to be careful when walking at the edge of the Clift. We can see many puffins perch at the protruding rock from the Clift. To view the puffin closely, we need to slowly crawl to the edge. We can really see the puffin in closed view, to enjoy every movements of the bird. The view of the bird with few white fish held in its beak is truly unforgettable. You will find the puffin so lovely and can spend hours just looking at them. Fortunately there were not many people even when we were there in summer.

Absolutely fantastic, 4x4 recommended to get there, worth a longer detour. If you have more time, do not go straight to the end of the road, but go left few kilometers before. Road is rough, but you will arrive at highest point. Views are absolutely fantastic, thousands of birds nest on the cliffs and you will likely meet very few or no people at all. During summer puffins can be spotted here.

We went in September 2017 and the views were spectacular. It was wind and chilly, but the cliffs and views were gorgeous. I think some even slept in their car near the base of the cliff (next to the restroom). If you are afraid of heights, just don't go near the edge. The edge is roped off from tourist but he view is unbelievable. The road to get here was rough, lots of pot holes and some were narrow. Just be careful and take your time driving through here. Free parking. Fill up with gas before attempting to drive out here and bring water, maybe even have a picnic out here. There are tables, but no where to buy food or drink.

Extraordinary drive past wild country with huge striated cliffs and big drops if you made a false move in the car. Got there round midnight as recommended and walked for miles without seeing puffins. Millions of other seabirds of course. Big excitement when two arctic foxes started hunting the birds laying I
On the ground. Wonderful brief sunset when the sun went under the horizon for 40minutes.

Then back at the car saw about 20 puffins on the cliffs by the parking area. One posed obligingly for photos!
