Dyrhˇlaey Nature Reserve

Dyrhˇlaey Nature Reserve

 
Dyrhˇlaey Nature Reserve is a small headland and the southernmost part of Iceland. Dyrhˇlaey is one of the best places in Iceland for birdwatching but many species of birds nest here during summer, - Eider ducks, Fulmars and Puffins along with other species. However, access is restricted during nesting season. A track leads up to the very top and to the unmanned lighthouse. In fine weather the views from here are very wide and splendid. Care should be taken near the cliff edges, particularly those overlooking the sea.
