Látrabjarg is Europe’s largest bird cliff, 14 km long and up to 440m high, and the largest seabird colony in the Northern Atlantic. Furthermore it marks the Western-most point of Europe.
It is claimed to be the best place in the world to photograph puffins and many other seabirds making their inhabitations in the cliffs.
The area of Southern Westfjords is characterized by white sandy beaches, so unique in Iceland. With the Atlantic Ocean meeting the white sandy shores, the sea turns into an incredible turquoise blue colour, resembling those found only in the Caribbean.
