flora and fauna in iceland isn’t always various. the most important and best wild hooved mammal is reindeer. reindeer have been delivered from norway past due in the 18th century at the start for farming, but reindeer husbandry the scandinavian fashion did not tempt the icelanders, and the animals had been in no way domesticated. nowadays the wild reindeer live best in south east and east iceland, primarily at better elevations in summer season but are searching for decrease grassland, closer to the coast in winter. while their primary habitat is in the deserted expanses via snæfell, reindeer are seen each year inside the territory extending from vopnafjördur within the north to the glacier lagoon within the south.
Here are my photos of some reindeer that I met in Hornafjordur (southeast corner of Iceland) in the past 4 years.
