Frequently asked questions

What is a fjord?

Created by glacial erosion, a fjord is a long and narrow inlet of land with cliffs or mountains on each side. If the inlet's mouth is broader than its length, it is considered a bay or a cove, not a fjord.

Which fjords are best for puffin spotting?

Migrating puffins build their nests in rocky cliffs by the sea, and their habitats are not limited to Iceland’s fjords. Optimal locations for puffin spotting include Mt. Látrabjarg at the westernmost point of the Westfjords, Ingólfshöfði cape on the South Coast, the islands Dyrhólaey and Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands) and Borgarfjörður fjord in the Eastfjords.

What are the Westfjords?

The Westfjords are an administrative district in Iceland, covering a vast peninsula which boasts dozens of mountainous fjords. The Westfjords include Iceland’s northwestern-most point which faces the east coast of Greenland. Because of the lack of lowland areas, the Westfjords are sparsely populated, relative to their grand size, and are only home to approximately 7,400 inhabitants.

What are the Eastfjords?

The Eastfjords are a large region in East Iceland, which consists of a dozen fjords. The area is home to around 15,300 people, and the largest town is Egilsstaðir.        

Why aren't there any fjords in South Iceland?

Due to glacial outbursts over the past 10,000 years, sediments deposited by meltwater outwash, at the terminus of a glacier, formed vast outwash plains or “sandar” on Iceland’s South Coast. Underneath the soil, there rests the vast lava field Þjórsárhraun. The edges of the lava field reach several hundred metres offshore, thereby protecting the lowland from the invasion of the sea, resulting in the shoreline’s smooth appearance.
