Information about Krýsuvíkurbjarg

Krysuvikurbjarg

Krýsuvíkurbjarg is a bird cliff in the southern part of the Reykjanes peninsula. 

During summer, this sea cliffs host over 60,000 seabirds, with species such as puffins, sandpipers, guillemots and peewits all making it their home. It is, therefore, a paradise for birdwatchers. Located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, this 15 kilometre (49,212 ft.) stretch of cliffs is easily accessible from Reykjavík, and at 40 metres tall, with a face that drops sheerly into the ocean, it’s quite an attraction in and of itself.
