Látrabjarg in Westfjord, Iceland marks the western-most part of Europe (excluding some of the Azores islands) and its bird cliffs are one of the rare places on earth that is home to several spectacular species of birds.
The cliffs are home to millions of birds, including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots and razorbills. It is vital for their survival as it hosts up to 40% of the world population for some species e.g. the Razorbill. It is Europe's largest bird cliff, 14km long and up to 440m high.
Latrabjarg cliffs are also one of the famous locations for mountain climbing.
When visiting breeding grounds around Iceland, be sure not to wander off the marked trails, as nests can be located anywhere.
