Where are your favourite places in Iceland?
"I was born and raised in Vestmannaeyjar and that is for sure my favourite place on the planet. The Westman Islands is Iceland best kept secret with rich history, unique landscape and heartwarming and welcoming inhabitants. Westman Islands (Vestmannaeyjar) main islands is called Heimaey it has the population of around 4300. Westman Islands are surrounded by 15 other uninhabited islands and around 30 rocks and skerries making the seabird life very rich and bountiful. Spectacular view and nature."
