Snæfellsnes Peninsula – West Iceland

The Snæfellsnes peninsula is a unique location, that we keep returning to time and time again.

There is of course Snæfellsjökull, the iconic strato volcano, that shaped the peninsula, last erupting some 2000 years ago. It is topped by a glacier and is a popular destination all year round.

But the area is incredibly diverse with vast stretches of beautiful coastal cliffs and an abundance of bird life fascinating to watch.

We noticed, that every once in a while something caused a panic among the birds prompting them to take off in a frenzy. The reason for the disturbance were Ravens patrolling the area. The Ravens feed on other birds’ eggs, so the panicking is quite understandable. Somehow though we got the impression, that the Ravens were also quite enjoying themselves causing such a stir.
