The varied and grand story of the Westman Islands remains a surprise. Whether it is the trials of the people of the island throughout history or their geological history. The island is geologically young and its formation is unique compared to other islands around Iceland. Living in the Westman Islands has not always been easy, being so remote with the sea around. But summers have been successful as the island is rich in bird life and the proximity to the fish in the sea has helped and filled the island life. Historical places such as the Herjófsdalur, Störhöfði, the puffin and the eruption of the 1973 eruption, together with more, give you a great overview of the whole island. The vast and beautiful nature and fun stories of the native islander make the trip enjoyable and lively.
