Great views leaving Stykkisholmur and approaching the westfjords. The water was pretty calm, but you could feel a slow ‘rolling’ of the boat from side to side.
One of the absolute highlights of our Iceland trip was Latrabjarg. The road to Latrabjarg was bumpy, narrow, and blind, going up and down and around the mountains. But spectacular views en route, and when you get to the end of the road at Látrabjarg and up the easily climbed path the bird life is amazing. Gorgeous rocks where millions of sea birds nest on up the 400 m high rocks. About 15 seabird species lay eggs and live in these cliffs during the summertime. Látrabjarg is vital for the survival of entire species since in some cases, the cliffs host up to 40% of the entire world’s population of some species, such as the razorbill. Among them lots of puffins. However, we had to be very careful as sometimes the birds built their nest directly under the grass which is then prone to erosion.
In Isarfjördur excellent dinner in rustic Tjörhusid resdtaurant supposed to be one of the best fish restaurants in Iceland. Located it is museum-type old building built in 1781 and it’s buffet style and they just keep bringing out more and more and more extremely fresh fish, prepared in an amazing variety of styles. The menu is whatever they caught that day, cooked however they feel like cooking it. Served immediately after it’s cooked in giant cast iron skillets. Not cheap but definitely worth it!
