Having seen puffins in the Westman Islands, at a distance, and not very many, I was skeptical about the reviews I was reading about this place. However, it what it is. We saw 100’s of puffins basically within arms reach, burrowing in their little nests, flooping down to catch fish and generally having a chill time. They didn’t seem disturbed by the humans that were beside them. And to top it off it’s right next to an idyllic little harbour. Don’t miss this. We went at noon on a horribly foggy day and still were blown away.

Continue by car further from the village Borgarfjörður Eystri and its church for about 5 km till a small harbor. Just near and above the small harbor there is a small hill with abundance of puffin birds. The short trail is leading among the birds without any fear from their side. On the other side of the hill there is a colony of seagulls nesting there as well. No many sites you can find so many puffins and from such a short distance of a few meters.

They have a observation house, where you can observe the puffins up close. The puffins were gone when we were there but you could see all the little nests that they use. Would love to come back to see the Puffins.

Our five year old absolutely loved this place just like us. She could climb the stairs and be real close to the hundreds of puffins just meandering about. We also loved it even though we have often seen puffins before.The harbor is cute and calm.

Quite a journey to the location - gravel roads. It was all worth it! Saw a colony of Puffins! Some as close as 2-3metres away from you! We stopped by Alfacafe on our way out....
