Geography:

The south cost of Iceland excompasses a magnificent shoreline of marshlands, bays and black sand beaches. The lava field that rests beneath the soils stretched several hundred metres offshore which protects the lowlands from the ocean waves.

Plants and Animals:

The South Coast of Iceland hosts many rare species of geothermal vegetation such as mosses and water pygmyweed. The region boasts vibrant bird life during all seasons. It is not only rich with both marshland birds and seabirds but also migrating birds such as the North Atlantic puffin. You can also see humpbacks and minke whales in Reykjavik Faxi Bay but sightings are less frequent than in the north.
