Tjornes peninsula in North Iceland is a great place for birdwatchers.

The stubby peninsula of Tjornes in North Iceland is one of the best-known geological locations of the country.

Layers of fossil shells and lignite can be found on the coastal cliffs down from Ytri-Tunga farm on the western side of Tjornes. Colonies of puffins and other sea birds nest on the cliffs along the eastern coast.

The best way to visit this area is on a relaxed self drive tour. One of the best options for doing so is this 7-day Arctic Coast Way self drive, available in the summer months.
