Bearded Seal in the westfjords

On may 13th travellers on a skitrip with  Aurora Arktika spotted a Bearded Seal at the shore of fjord Veiðileysa in the Westfjords. Bearded Seals are rare visitors in Iceland and can be recognized by the beard they are named after. Further information on Bearded Seals can be found here

We thank our friends at Aurora Arktika for notifying us but it is very important for our specialists to get notifications on sightings of rare seal speicies at the coast of Iceland.
