This NEW trip combines the best of our perennial favorite, Iceland: Birds and Natural History tour with the addition of rich birding areas on the eastern coast, including Flói Bird Reserve. From black sand beaches to glaciers, from waterfalls to mountains to wetlands, we'll witness huge breeding colonies of Puffins, of Dunlin, and of Gannets; watch overhead for the flights of high Arctic migrants like Sanderlings, Red Knots, and Ruddy Turnstones; sail Breiðafjörður's islands; hike around a lake in search of breeding pairs of Gyrfalcons; and experience one of the largest seal colonies in the country followed by seeing Iceland's breeding ducks in their stunning plumage, including Barrow's Goldeneye, Harlequin Duck, Scaup, Tufted Duck, Red-breasted Merganser, Common Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Eurasian Wigeon, Eurasian Teal, and Gadwall. Led by well known Icelandic birder and photographer Daniel Bergmann who will be available to offer photography insights and tips to anyone in the group.
Prepare to be dazzled.
