How many elephants are there in Iceland? We’ve counted two – one in the Westman Islands and another by Dyrhólaey.
The Westman Islands, or Vestmannaeyjar in Icelandic, is an archipelago of 15 islands located just off the south coast of Iceland. Out of the 15, only one is inhabited year round: the island of Heimaey. There you will find a community of 4.000 that has prospered from a thriving fishing industry. With stunning landscapes, charming villages and the largest puffin colony of the world, these small yet enchanting islands offer a variety of activities and attractions for visitors.
