Ytri Tunga沙滩位于斯奈山半岛(Snæfellsnes)南岸,是冰岛观赏海豹的最佳地点之一;冰岛海滩多为火山砂石构成的黑沙滩,而Ytri Tunga则是一座白沙滩。

观海豹

冰岛南岸的杰古沙龙冰河湖(Jökulsárlón)、冰岛北部的瓦斯半岛(Vatnsnes)与斯奈山半岛的Ytri Tunga均是冰岛闻名遐迩的观海豹胜地,观测成功率极高。

在近海处凸起的石丘上,游人全年都能看到几只海豹在慵懒栖息,但观测海豹的最佳季节无疑是夏季。Ytri Tunga沙滩最常见的海豹种类是港海豹,它们同时也是冰岛最常见的两大海豹种类之一;另一种则是灰海豹。冠海豹与环斑海豹在冰岛也有分布。许多人常常将海象与海豹混淆,但海象在冰岛极为罕见,仅西峡湾地区偶有现身。

过去几个世纪以来,冰岛人的生活与海豹密不可分,海豹曾是人们赖以生存的自然资源。海豹肉可供食用,海豹脂肪可用于制油,海豹皮是防水的衣料。这些形态优美、甚至有些神秘的生物也常常出现在民间传说与奇诡故事中。“海豹人”的传说就在北欧地区广泛流传着:褪去皮囊,海豹人就化身成美丽的女子。

海豹会破坏渔网、偷取渔获,因此曾经的渔民们会捕杀海豹。如今,这些可爱的生物越来越受到冰岛人与游客的喜爱,它们也为冰岛自然增添了无尽的灵动。

如何前往

从首都雷克雅未克出发,即可轻松到达Ytri Tunga海豹沙滩。沿一号环岛公路向北行驶,向斯奈山半岛自驾进发;行驶至半岛南海岸中段,便能看到指向海滩的路标。

停车场旁有一块信息牌,一条小路通向海豹沙滩。在观赏海豹时,一定要保持安静、并与它们保持距离,以防惊扰海豹栖息。
