Látrabjarg is a promontory and the westernmost point in Iceland.[1] The cliffs are home to millions of birds, including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots and razorbills. It is vital for their survival as it hosts up to 40% of the world population for some species e.g. the Razorbill. It is Europe's largest bird cliff, 14 km long and up to 440 m high.
