Yes, it's a long drive on unpaved roads to get there. No, you don't absolutely need a 4WD to get there; we drove this in a little Kia Stonic. Take it slow and stay within your abilities, and you should be fine. Views are remarkable almost the whole way out. Yes, there are clearly marked public restrooms just a few kilometers before the end of the road and the cliffs.

We made it to the cliffs on a sunny day in late July. Fun fact: This is the furthest point west in all of Europe. Next stop across the water is Greenland! Most of the puffins had left by this point in the season, but there were thousands of other birds. The walk along the cliffs is lovely, if a bit rugged at times. Bring good hiking shoes. We took many lovely pictures, much like the ones already posted here. I walked further on, while my wife went back and did more bird watching. She did finally see one lone puffin and got a couple of nice photos of it.

I think this is a fun and intriguing destination for the adventurous. If you don't life rough roads or ocean views from atop the cliffs, well, it may not be for you. But we found it worth the drive.

The distance from civilisation doesn’t sound too far but Google underestimates the time it will take!! The road is tough going at times even in a 4wd but on a bright sunny day in July it was worth it. We saw plenty of birds including a puffin in its nest hole. The scenery was great and there’s a fabulous cliff walk on a clearly marked path - just go as far as you want, then retrace your steps. I have to contradict the review that says no toilets for 40km. There are toilets a few minutes before reaching the parking lot. They are clearly marked with roadside parking and picnic benches. It’s by the beach so we had a great picnic here after visiting the bird cliffs.

This may be a beautiful experience in summer, but in late September it is a bust. There are only a few sad birds (not puffins).
The road there is terrible. You need a 4 wheel drive or some such, the road is a washboard. And this was on a good day.
There are no toilets within 40 kms.

It was well worth the drive out, on a sunny day, on the unpaved road with some rather scary sections close to the cliffs. There was a fine view of Patrekksfjordur at the beginning, then the stunning views of Hanjotur and Breidavik golden sand beaches. At the cliffs themselves there were very large numbers of charming black guillemots and many kittiwakes, sometimes side by side. We had seen puffins close up elsewhere, so we did not need to do what others said they had to do to see them – lying flat and peeking over the cliff.

The drive is half the fun, or more -- if it is Spetember and you have JUST misssed all your puffin friends. However even if the puffina are out to sea, the brds are there, and even without the birds it is beautiful. Alsao a great mellow hike for as long as you want.
We were ther in early Sept (05 sept) and just missed he smart birds, but the lazy hardy ones wer there, and it was agreat place to be, and as said above the cliffs are great, the hike as mellow as you wnt it to be. We did 2 miles out and 2 miles back-- but one you can go all the way to Rauðisandur if you want. Which we did but did not have time.

The trip was better than expected. Check on safe travel.is and monitor road conditions. Most of Road was paved and then packed dirt. Some steep winding cliffs. We had a wonderful day! Just gorgeous! Be sure to bring binoculars and camera

We had a hard time finding the road conditions but the road to the cliffs is perfectly fine for 2W drive cars, just some potholes. It IS a long drive off the main road, 1 hour, but really worth it.
The cliff requires some walking and some stone steps but the bird life is teaming.
Birds swarming around, we saw several puffins come right up to the edge. Intimidating if you don't like heights but then you can easily view the cliffs from the path
Really a must.

Spectacular views but more than that being able to observe such abundant wildlife from so close is breathtaking.

Walking on the edge, admiring the puffins and seals on the rocks 200 mtr below. Footpath and safety string are in place for your comfort.

Best to avoid Iceland if it is Puffins you want to see as they are hunted in their hundreds for sport. See Hunting Iceland website where the boast about bagging 100-150 birds in an outing.

This means visits to the supermarket brings you face to face with puffin carcases on sale.
