The puffins have arrived in Húsavík! We welcome our cute and furry friends, the Atlantic Puffin, as they’ve begun migrating to the famous Puffin Island located near Húsavík! Iceland is home to 60% of the Atlantic Puffin population. In Húsavík, more than 200,000 puffins live in the nearby Puffin Island part of the year. The Puffin Island is a steep cliff, which is an ideal place for the puffins to build nests.
