TOP Destinations: Westfjords Iceland

February 23, 2014  •  Leave a Comment


 

Hi, after crossing the North region we reach the Westfjords giving birth to this week new album at ce-top-photography.com/p765792750.

The endless rugged coastline of the fjords in this region are only reached after long hours through unpaved bumpy roads, going up and down the hills, in and out the fjords, bending left and right time and time again at an inevitable slow pace. But then again the views from the jagged cliffs made all worthwhile. This piece of land is as isolated as one can be, letting you feel nothing but the silence, the wind stroking your face and the beauty of the wild nature invade your spirit.

One of the highlights is of course the Látrabjarg cliffs, home to a major bird colony with an unbelievable number of the charismatic puffins, besides seabirds, razorbills, guillemots among others. The cliffs reach 400 meters over sea level and provide the perfect spot for the nesting seabirds. This point is also Europe's second westernmost point after Flores in Azores, curiously also captured in a recent album (ce-top-photography.com/p730549947).

Quite surprisingly in this region we can also stumble into stunning golden beaches hidden behind the clouds that seem to float around the cliffs.

Next week don't miss the last episode of this amazing adventurous journey, cheers!
