Hornstrandir National Park
The Hornstrandir Nature Reserve was established in 1975. The Nature and Food Agency is responsible for the Reserve.Social changes resulted in the abandonment of all farms during World War II and in the post-war period Few dozen houses are located within the Nature Reserve are, both old, renovated farmsteads and new summer cottages. Through the ages, nature and human life in Hornstrandir were closely interwoven. Traditional agriculture was always limited; instead, the inhabitants based their livelihood on the sea and bird cliffs. Outlaws travelled to Hornstrandir in order to board foreign ships and leave the country. As a result of nature’s conditions, the history of the region assumes a depth which gives an added dimension to visits to the nature reserve. About 260 species of flowering plants and ferns are known to grow in the nature reserve area. Most of these species are common in the West Fjords, but there are also rare species in the region. The region has been totally preserved against grazing for several decades.Field mice are common in the area, but foxes are the prevailing mammals. Seals, are common sight on the beach. About 30 species of birds nest in the nature reserve, and many more species can be observed. The most interesting points for bird watching are the bird cliffs, Hornbjarg, Hælaví¬kurbjarg and Riturinn, with their superabundance of birds.
