So you want to see puffins in Iceland but where is the best place? Well, you’ve picked a great destination. Iceland’s population of puffins is estimated at between 8-10 million. That’s an insane amount of birds in one place. And the Atlantic Puffins, most commonly found in Iceland nest there each year (between 3-4 million pairs). Normally, the birds nest between 1st May and 15th August each year. My trip was mid-June 2017, so perfect timing for seeing lots of puffins in Iceland. If you are travelling independently, either in a car or campervan then save money on a Puffin Tour and go find them for yourself. Here I will tell you where to find the puffins for an amazing close-up experience.
