    If you can make it to the West Fyords, June is prime time to shoot puffins, particularly at Landmarbjarg (the largest cliffs in Europe). -note 6 hr drive from Reykjavik
    Porsimork, (national park) -2 hr. drive from reykjavik (need 4 wheel drive)
    Olaskvik is beautiful as well. -2hrs
    Oh and Vik too near the Glacier Lagoon- 3hrs.
    Happy travels.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I think there was a member from there (besides wabash)...I don't remember her name...actually I don't remember if it was even Iceland....could have been Greenland.

    Sorry, that doesn't help much.

    I think you're right Big Mike....I could've sworn there was a girl from Iceland on here...but when I did a search, I only came up with Greenland.

    There's one great NASA satellite image from "Earth as Art" series:

    West Fjords, Iceland:

    There're 2 places in Iceland I deeply regret not having visited while I was there. One is the island of Vestmannaeyjar, where puffins circle tirelessly. The other is Mývatn, in northeast Iceland. Lucky you could make the trip in June, it should be a great journey..

    Wabash, it's sooo coool to live in Iceland, I can only envy you.
