Dalvík - Gimli HI Hostel

A family-run hostel in the friendly fishing town of Dalvík, this is the perfect spot for exploring the wonders of Tröllaskagi peninsula and the Eyjafjörður area. From the harbour you can take a ferry to Grímsey Island and step into the Arctic Circle, admiring whales, puffins and the magnificent north coast on the way. Every season offers something unique- particularly autumn, when the country's best wild blueberries can be found in the hills above the town and winter, when the area transforms into a skiing haven, with slopes for all skill levels.

  • Kaldi Brewery just outside the town offers tours every day upon request. They also have a spa, where you can literally bathe in beer.
  • Go whale watching, sea angling or diving with the many groups that operate from Dalvik.
  • Take the ferry from to Grímsey, an island on the edge of the Arctic Circle that is home to a hundred people and a million seabirds.
