Hornbjarg

Region: Westfjords
Coordinates: 66.4221° N 22.4399° W

This sheer cliff is one of the greatest seafowl habitats of the country. Its highest peaks reach 534 m above sea level. In earlier times, the cliff was called The Western Horn, but this name was carried over to the opposite corner of the country. On the cove, Hornvik was a fishermen’s hamlet during the earlier centuries and the farm Horn was considered an appendage because of driftwood, the seafowl catch, and the egg picking. This spot of the country, like the most of the rest of it, is tightly connected with the Sagas.
