About this book

Iceland is famous for its stunning landscapes, unique geology, and rich birdlife. There are few places on Earth where volcanism has resulted in such a multitude of different landscapes, and where such vast numbers of birds are easy to watch and photogaph. The Crossbill Guide: Iceland shows everything Iceland's nature has to offer, and contains 16 detailed itineraries for the best places to go. The guide also describes close to 50 sites with tips for visitors interested in geology, birds, marine mammals, flora, and history of the landscape.

"[...] a very good guide to one of Europe’s finest wild landscapes."
– Richard Sale, Ibis 157, 2015

"Iceland is becoming an increasingly popular destination for birdwatchers but anyone who just looks at Harlequin Ducks and Grey Phalaropes is missing a lot. This Crossbill guide by Dirk Hilbers and his team fills in the gaps for people who want to see spectacular geological features, photograph flowers, understand the history of the country or find the best spots for food and whales. I am looking forward to going to see "a very large population of Windmill Fringed Gentian" just a short walk from a road I know really well.

The book is made up of three main sections: Landscape runs from geology to nature conservation (66 pages), there are 44 pages on Flora & Fauna, which is adequate, and a Practical Part of 110 pages that provides the core information about where to go and what to see. This balance reflects the aims of The Crossbill Guides Foundation: to increase public involvement with nature conservation.

For a great holiday all you need is this book, a road map, a reliable car and a common sense approach to the weather and road conditions. And don't forget to check waders, geese and swans for colour-rings!"
– Graham Appleton, BTO book reviews
