Blissful beaches

Sometimes in unexpected places. Not just to sunbathe, but to explore their beautiful surroundings as well.

The coastal track to Stórhöfði – Puffin colony and geological beach

The coastal track to Stórhöfði – Puffin colony and geological beach

Stórhöfði is the southernmost point of Heimaey, and home to the biggest puffin colony in Iceland. There’s also the surreal geological beach of Klauf, formed by volcanic eruptions from several directions. On the coastal track to Stórhöfði you can see incredible views, wild cliff formations and lots of puffins along the way.

The zen of Stafsnes – The hidden beach

The zen of Stafsnes – The hidden beach

The walking track to Stafsnes, a beautiful hidden beach on Heimaey. Stafsnes beach is peacefully nestled in a cove behind the impressive folded cliffs of Blátindur. It’s almost like Hawaii – but without the palm trees. It can be blissfully sheltered – and wind-free! – and significantly warmer than the rest of the island. On the way you’ll pass by the little house on the giant plug.

The Hazards – Scrambling up to prehistorical views

The Hazards – Scrambling up to prehistorical views

At just over 450 metres, Mount Amos isn’t really that high, but its inclination gets rather steep & challenging. You’ll have to scramble your way up (and down again!) over huge granite boulders to reach the top of this peak in The Hazards mountain range. Once you’ve braved the hardcore scrambling bit, you’ll be rewarded with awe-inspiring views over Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula on the east coast of Tasmania.

The first Wilderness Coffee photo

I already used these expressions for a long time, but this is the first time a Wilderness Coffee and a Natural High are actually simultaneously featured in one picture. At least a digital one. Having a Wilderness Coffee on this beautiful beach was pure bliss!
