Grímsey Island

More than 40 km north of the mainland lies the island of Grímsey, 5.3 km 2 in area, green and grassy on the top, but its sides mainly sheer cliff faces. Its north part is crossed by the Arctic Circle, the only point of Iceland that lies in the Arctic.


People often visit this northernmost Icelandic community in order to set foot across the Arctic Circle - indeed all our passengers receive a certificate to prove that they have done so.


In good weather, you will enjoy a grand view of the rugged mountains on both sides of Eyjafjoörður on you way to Grímsey.
