Escape the hustle and bustle of Iceland's mainland towns and make your way to this small but mighty island, where you'll find yourself in the midst of a birdwatching and wildlife paradise. Drangey Island’s sheer-sided palagonite rock - an impressive 590ft tall - provides a dramatic backdrop for the thousands of seabirds that call it home, including the beloved puffin, as well as gannets, guillemots, kittiwakes, fulmar, shearwaters, ravens and gyrfalcons. To reach the summit, you'll need to climb a man-made path along the cliff face, but don't let this discourage you — up-close sightings of puffins
sitting just feet from the trail make the hike worthwhile. Join a knowledgeable tour guide who will regale you with ancient stories of Viking exiles, such as Grettir the Strong, who once lived on the island. Once you reach the summit, you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the stunning Icelandic landscape and a sense of being on top of the world. So pack your hiking boots, bring your sense of adventure and set sail for Drangey Island.
