Tjörnes Travel Guide
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.
