Birding Tour Iceland: Viking Birding 2017
Duration: 9 days
Iceland, thanks to its remote location and harsh winters, has a relatively small population, leaving vast parts of this island nation untouched. Some amazing scenery of glaciers, volcanic peaks, steep cliffs, waterfalls, and steaming geysers make this an amazing panorama for a birding destination. On this ‘Birding Tour Iceland’ adventure, you’ll see it all!
Along with the stunning scenery you find a host of Eurasian breeding birds that make this place home for the summer. With abundant, almost constant sunlight during the middle of summer, the birds are active all day. Observing cliffs packed with breeding alcids and gulls is an amazing sight. Along with breeding plumage in many shorebirds and loons, which are often only seen in their drab winter plumage further south, this makes for a true birders’ and photographers’ paradise. Not to mention that off Húsavík exists some of the best whale watching in Europe!
With a major ring road circling the country, we’ll take time along its breadth to take in many stunning birds – not only from vehicles but also from several boats and even a tractor. We look forward to welcoming you to Birding Tour Iceland.See full tour detail
