In Search of Puffins

Somehow, the word got out amongst my friends on board ship, that I was very fond of puffins. It was only logical that a few of us would go by boat to the islands west of Stykkishólmur in search of the interesting creatures.

A visit to these islands is reward enough. The fantastic Icelandic skies make up for lack of vegetation.

Unusual rock formations.

Many islands provide nesting places for a variety of bird life.
