Krýsuvíkurbjarg/Krýsuvíkurberg are renowned bird cliffs with thousands of Icelandic sea birds like arctic terns, puffins (fratercula arctica), fulmars and more.

Nearby places: Kleifarvatn, Austurengjahver

About 63 000 pairs of birds were counted there shortly before 2014. The cliffs, which can as well reached on foot, are also a window in the geologic past. The lava flows covering the area came mostly from the crater up on Geitahlíð tuya, from the neighbouring Brennisteinsfjöll volcanic system.

Krýsuvíkurbjarg or -berg is protected as part of Reykjanesfólkvangur. To reach the sea cliffs you must drive a jeep track that runs down to the sea from Krýsuvík and Route 427.
