Stórikarl

Langanes is a veritable outdoor paradise teeming with birdlife, great for nature study and hiking.

Skoruvíkurbjarg, located mid-way out on its northern shore, is a great place to view and photograph sea birds such as auks. A viewing platform extending some 10m out from the cliff offers a close range view of a colony of the magnificent Northern Gannets on the sea stack Stórikarl. It´s Iceland's second largest Gannet colony, while nearby are colonies of auks, including guillemots and puffins in the bird-filled cliffs at Skoruvíkurbjarg.

The Gannet is the largest seabird in the North Atlantic and has earned the nickname Queen of the Atlantic.

Langanes peninsula is a treat for birdwatchers.
