Travel method: Jeep / 4×4
This tour will take us to the majestic Látrabjarg cliff. While exploring the magical birdlife of the largest seabird colony in the Northern Atlantic (bird season May-July), we will learn about the utilization history of the cliff and the famous rescue achievements in 1947-1948. Driving the rough track towards the deserted Keflavík you will enjoy the magnificent view over Rauðasandur, Breiðavík and Látravík. The steep rough high altitude road to Kollsvík, provide a thrilling drive and literally a “helicopter’s view” over Hænuvík and the opening of the two fjords of Patreksfjörður and Tálknafjörður. The large sandy beach of Rauðasandur is one of the most spectacular sites of Iceland. The red sand glows in the summer light, gathering its color from crushed scallop shells. We will stop by the French Café at Rauðasandur before we head off back to Patreksfjörður for a dinner and photo sharing after a memorable day.
