Frequently Asked Questions about sailing from Landeyahofn to Westman Iceland
Is it worth it to visit the Westman Islands?
The short answer is: YES!
And to back this up I’ll just list a few of the things that comes to mind, okay?
- The largest puffin colony in Europe.
- The Beluga Whale sanctuary.
- Surtsey, an underwater eruption resulting in this new island and UNESCO listed.
- Sprangan – an islander thing – rope from a cliff, show off to your mates. Do you dare?
- Amazing and varied restaurants.
- A golf course ranked in the top 200 of best golf courses in the world.
- The Elephant Rock.
- Sagnheimar Museum, a trip through time.
- The new volcano Mt Eldfell (eld means fire, fell is a sort of mountain I guess you could say). It formed in 1973, just outside of town and the museum about that same eruption, called Eldheimar (yeah, we’re really original, I know).
- And Söl. My personal favorite.
So the question should be: Is one day enough to experience this hidden gem?
(The answer to that is no, if that wasn’t clear.)
