Grímsey is an island 40km north of Iceland with around 80 all year inhabitants. Our tours are all guided by local guides who live or have lived in Grimsey for years. Grimsey is the only place in Iceland where the Arctic Circle crosses, which means the sun never sets at summer solstice and never rises over the horizon during winter solstice.
Grímsey is a haven for sea birds and heaven for birding and bird watching. Millions of sea birds inhabit the island every summer, even the Atlantic Puffin.
