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.
