Special feature
Photo feature: puffin taking off
On Europe's westernmost point, in Iceland's Western Fjord area, you can find a huge cliff (about 12 km long), which is home to an enormous amount of marine birds. This cliff, Látrabjarg, on the Northern coast of the Breiðafjörður, is famous for its puffin colony. It is hard to reach, but definitely worth a visit.
