Marvel at dramatic cliffs full of bird life with a local bird watching expert. This day tour gives you the opportunity to explore various places along the way to the Langanes Peninsula, such as Tjörnes, Kelduhverfi, and Þórshöfn.

What to expect?

  • Langanes is a narrow peninsula, situated between Thistilfjordur and Bakkaflói, shaped like a bird with a large head. Langanes has quite a rich bird life and very good shore-based observation points for watching bird species such as Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, and Gannets.

  • This area is about as wild as coastal Iceland gets, perfect for exploration off the beaten track. A rough road leads to Fontur, the tip of the peninsula, and along the sides of the road, there are the nesting grounds of Purple Sandpipers and Snow Buntings. Out on the peninsula, the cliffs are steep but fairly accessible. The curved shoreline at this point offers a good opportunity for photographers to hone their skills.

  • A trip to the outlying peninsula is an unforgettable adventure, where you drive by the remains of ancient farms. Below Skoruvík Cliffs, there is the rock column known as Stóri (big) Karl (Charles), which constitutes one of Iceland’s most accessible Gannet colonies. During the so-called Puffin season (till mid August), this is a grand site for Puffin observation.
