Although Latrabjarg is very beautiful during winter, summer months are better to see the Puffin, as the bulk of the Puffins stay in the cliffs from Mid May to Mid August.
The same things you would need to go birdwatching in any other country! Just make sure to pack some comfortable boots and winter-gear, as the top of the cliffs can get pretty windy.
Yes! We actually think this is the best way to travel around the beautiful Icelandic landscapes.

If you wish to visit during the warmest season, then summer (June, July and August) is your best option. During this time you can also find seasonal birds like the Puffins in the Latrabjarg cliffs. If you want to experience a magical side of Iceland, filled with Northern lights, then winter (September to February) is the best choice. Every season here is full of wonder and each has its own charm that will take your breath away.
As of the beginning of 2023, there is no Uber service in Iceland. This being a big island with widely spread cities, it is recommended to rent a car while you visit. If you do not feel like driving, there are other means of transportation available, such as taxis, buses and tours. In Reykjavik you can also find electric scooters from Hopp or Zolo.
