Elliðaey in the Westman Islands, which is 0.45 square kilometers in size, is grassy and was used for haymaking and as pasture for sheep and cattle. It is rich in birdlife, facilitating large colonies of puffins and other seabirds. Elliðaey is the main nesting area for storm petrels and leach’s petrels in Iceland, which breed there in the tens of thousands. Because of these bird colonies, Elliðaey is registered as a nature reserve. The house on Elliðaey belongs to the Elliðaey Hunting Association which practices puffin hunting on the island in the summer and egg collecting in the spring. The association also has a steam bath on the island.
