Iceland trip report, June-July 2022

For a country with just one native land mammal and no endemic species, Iceland sure gets a lot of coverage on this website. So I wrote a very brief trip report: Iceland, 12 days and 11 species including Arctic fox, orca and white-beaked dolphin.

    Thanks for an interesting report, Vladimir! Iceland has always been a place I want to visit and your brief report gives a good insight on what to expect.

      Note that there are many other trip reports from Iceland on this site, some of them by people who traveled there much more extensively than I did.

    Do you have a list or a link to a list of the 75 breeding birds of Iceland? Everyone mentions them but I can only find complete lists of species including rare/vagrants.

    Thanks! One more quick question. Did you get a 4×4 car?

  • Eric Liebgold

    Sorry for sending all the Iceland questions on the forum. I just bought my tickets! and am working on my itinerary. How did you book the blind for the puffins on the Westmann Islands? Did you stay on the island?

    • Vladimir Dinets

      No need to book it, it’s open to everyone. You can spend the night there, just bring a sleeping bag.
