June 26th-July1st, 2016


Home to spectacular glaciers, thermal hot springs, and hundreds of volcanoes, it’s no wonder Iceland is known as the land of fire and ice. The country’s avifauna is equally impressive, with its remote location at the junction of two oceans making for a unique mix of vagrant and migratory birds from both the east and west.

Join Clearwater Audubon Society on this exploration of some of Iceland’s best birding spots, from Lake Mývatn to Europe’s largest bird cliff, for the chance to observe an array of species, including auks, petrels, cormorants, gannets, gulls, terns, waders, stilts, and birds of prey.
