description One of the gratest attractions of Iceland and the Vestmann Islands are the puffins. Members of one of the world's largest colony (about 6 million specimen) are standing on the edge of the cliff. One can get quite close to them since they are not afraid of humans. Their funny outfit makes them seem like a comedy gang. While walking inside a colony special care must be taken to prevent stepping on top of their nests that are digged into the loose soil.
