Heimaey Island (Iceland)

In January 1973, half of the town was destroyed by lava flow during the Eldfell Volcano's eruption. It threatened to close the town's harbour - main income source for the island. To prevent further damages, an operation was conducted - seawater was used to cool the advancing lava, thus the harbor was saved.

Every summer on Heimaey Iseland come to nest around 8 million puffins (seabirds with brightly colored beaks). Millions of other seabirds migrate to the island to feed and breed.

Heimaey is connected to mainland Iceland via Vestmannaeyjar Airport and also by a ferry.

Most of the locals live off fishing. Only during the island's annual festival, locals are allowed to catch a few puffins and eat them - at the festival or at home.
