Langanes

Langanes is a 40 km long peninsula ending in a thin strip of land, called Fontur, in northeast of Iceland. Nowadays all population of Langanes peninsula lives in Þórshöfn town, but earlier many fishing villages were situated on the coast of the peninsula, which are now abandoned. Langanes is a great place to visit for those interested in birds, as many of them nest in the cliffs of the peninsula. Here it is possible to see gannets, puffins, guillemots, razorbills and many other birds. NATO radar station was operated on the peninsula between 1954 and 1968.
