Red sand, peace & quiet
Rauðisandur, or “Red Sands,” is named for the unique golden-red colour of the sand beach in the Látrabjarg area of the southern West Fjords.
Facing Breiðafjörður bay to the south, this area offers a sense of tranquility and awe-inspiring scenery, with the Snæfellsjökull glacier visible in the distance on a clear day. The vast, sandy shoreline is also regarded as a prime viewing spot for a variety of wildlife, including seals and seabirds.
