Puff, puff, puff—say hello to arrays of puffins that took all over Iceland. From mid-April to August these toy-like birds make Iceland their home. They come to feed, breed and, of course, amuse the visitors. This spectacle is something—many tourists even say they haven't seen such a huge colony of birds in one place.

Perfect sites for watching these fluffy birds are Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach near the city Vik and the islands Heimaey, Lundey, and Akurey that you can easily reach by ferry. Don't forget to clean up your photo memory card—you'll be absorbed in taking pictures of puffin's characteristic colourful beak and fluffy white face. Have fun!
