Visiting Puffin Land on Mykines

We spent the day on Mykines, the best island for puffin watching.
Not far from Mykines village, you meet the first puffins.

And here comes the fun part. It’s pretty steep, so don’t go if you are afraid of hights.

All the holes are puffin’s nests, and the puffins are everywhere. It’s called Lundaland, which I would translate to Puffin Land, but the dictionary says: Lundaland: [(steep) grass-grown area facing the sea which puffins inhabit; nesting site].

To get to Mykineshólmur where the lighthouse (our goal) is situated, you have to cross the Atlantic Bridge.

Back in the village, there is plenty of time before the boat comes back, so here is a view from the other side.

And more puffins, just because they are adorable.
