Two large icebergs are currently drifting on the sailing route off the coast of the West Fjords and may prove dangerous to vessels. Chunks of ice have started breaking off from the icebergs which are difficult to pick up on radars.

These chunks of ice are especially dangerous for small fishing boats, visir.is reports.
The control center of the Icelandic Coast Guards has received many reports on the icebergs. No polar bears have been spotted, though; polar bears sometimes swim to Iceland after being carried towards the country on icebergs from Greenland.
