Join Poppy Askham on a “tropical” Westfjords getaway to Rauðasandur, a beautiful copper-toned beach with an intriguing past and Iceland’s westernmost point – Látrabjarg, a 14km sea cliff, home to tens of thousands of seabirds. There’ll be puffins, seals and bucketfuls of rain.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
