                Here in the Westman Islands the world's youngest island was created in November of 1963. Later named Surtsey, it is a part of a group of volcanic islands well known for their sheer cliffs and huge Puffin populations. On the only inhabited island, Heimaey, an active volcano challenged its existence withan eruption in 1973. The town's firefighters were able to dam the flow before too much damage was done. The surrounding waters are known for whales and huge, echo-filled caves perfect for exploration.
