My husband and I just returned from our trip to Iceland. One of our "must dos" was to visit this cliff and hopefully see the puffins. I have to admit that to get here isn't the easiest. You have to take a dirty road that...More

Our trip to Iceland was in late October, nonetheless we decided to make the trek over to Latrabjarg cliffs. Basing ourselves in Isafjördur, the journey took an entire day there and back. The driving conditions are unfavourable for the most part, with long winding roads...More

It's a nice place to visit during the summers when puffins are still calling the cliff their home. By September middle it is cold and super windy. The drive to the cliffs is painful since the roads are not paved. It's a nice place to...More

We came quite a distance specifically to see nesting puffins, but by August 20th they had already gone. Definitely come here if you are into birdwatching, but try to come between May-July for best puffin viewing. And stay away from the edge of the cliffs....More

We visited the Latrabjarg Cliffs during our drive around Iceland's Ring Road and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our entire trip. This location has magnificent cliffs dropping directly into the sea with lots of wave action added as a bonus....More

The drive there was a thrill, maybe a bit more than that in some parts of the road (road #62). We arrived at the Latrabjarg cliff late evening and the number of birds at that time was extremely high. The views are great and there...More

We arrived at the camping site that's just a few minutes from the cliffs on a beautiful evening. Since our day had already been very long and filled with activities, we decided to stay there, go to bed early and be ready to see the...More

The cliffs of all cliffs, Látrabjarg, are home to birds in unfathomable numbers. This westernmost point of Iceland (and Europe if Greenland and the Azores are not counted) is really a line of several cliffs, 14 kilometres long and up to 441 m high. And...More

Unfortunately we went in october and all that drive out there with our rental car was a bit in vain as there were no puffins there at this time. Saw the abandoned nests and some feathers. Fantastic view though and even though we went to...More
