Postcard from Vigur Island, with smallest post office in Iceland

Vigur is the second largest island of the Ísafjarðardjúp fjord in Westfjords, Iceland. The island is around 2 kilometres (6,600 ft) in length and 400 metres in width. The island is most noted for its sheep farming, with only a single farm being located on Vigur. Smallest post office in Iceland i slocated here, and my friend Wolfgang sent me this beautiful aerial view of the island from that place.

On this fantastic stamp you can see White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), from set Europa (C.E.P.T.) 2019 - National Birds, issued on 11.4.2019.

Thank you so much, Wolfgang!
