Puffin with nest caves on Cape Ingolfshofdi, Iceland. The Atlantic puffin has become an emblematic animal of Iceland, and many visitors want to see this cute black-and-white little bird with its bright orange beak and webbed feet. Luckily, Iceland is one of the best places to see puffins as it is home to the largest colony of puffins in the world, and over half of the world’s population nest here each year.
Although numbers have been sadly declining in recent years, it is estimated that over 5 million Atlantic puffins nest in Iceland each year during the spring and summer months. However, even though there are millions of these little birds in Iceland, they are not always the easiest to find.
