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. 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, and night! Observing cliffs packed with breeding alcids and gulls is an amazing sight. Along with breeding plumage in many ducks, 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!See full tour detail
