No wonder Iceland is a paradise, and one of the best places on the planet, for birdwatchers. Usually when we are traveling around the country, we see all kinds of birds. The Whooper Swan is a bird we see all the time almost everywhere. There are many landmarks in the Icelandic landscape named after the Whooper Swan everywhere, which tells us that this bird has been around for a long time. At least two fjords are named after the Whooper Swan, Álftafjörður in Snæfellsnes and Álftafjörður in the South East Region. Consequently, both fjords are almost always packed with Whooper Swans. It is always an impressive sight to see a flock of Whooper Swans fly together and add a nice feeling to your experience in the Icelandic landscape.
