Landowners Complain about Traffic at Látrabjarg

Landowners have complained about heavy traffic near Látrabjarg bird cliff in the West Fjords. The cliff is the largest in Europe and is an increasingly popular destination among travelers in Iceland but is also home to a summerhouse community.

According to ranger Hákon Ásgeirsson, around 120 vehicles travel to the area each day and around 11,000 people visited the area last month.

There have been calls for the area to be given national park status but landowners are keen to learn about what changes to their rights might take place if that happens, reports.
