Picked up at your Hotel. Driving to our destination with stops for photo shootings on our way. (Estimated straight driving 6-7 hours) On our way to the destination we will drive through unforgettable landscape like fjords, high mountains clear rivers and unique landscape. Westfjords are attached to the mainland by a narrow isthmus of land barely 10km wide. WestFjords are one of the most breathtakingly beautiful and least-visited corners of Iceland – only three percent of all foreign tourists make it out here. Everything here is extreme – from the mountains that dominate the landscape, plunging precipitously into the Atlantic, to the ferocious storms that have gnawed the coastline into countless craggy inlets. Life up here, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, is tough – even in summer, temperatures seldom rise above 10°C, and drifting pack ice is never far from the north coast. We will pass the city Búðardalur and cross the bridge over Gilsfjörður where it all starts
We start the day early and go to Látrabjarg for photo shooting and more photo shooting We are finished, when we are ready
Látrabjarg, The cliffs of all cliffs, Látrabjarg, are home to birds in unfathomable numbers. It hosts millions of birds and is vital for their survival as it hosts up to 40% of the world population for some species as the Razorbill. It is Europe’s largest bird cliff. Guillemots and other cliff birds number either in tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or in the millions. The birds are fearless, and provide stunning photographic opportunities from close range. The puffins are particularly tame and are the ones frequenting the grassy, higher part of the cliffs. But look out, the edges are fragile and loose and the fall is high.
