This is our optimum trip if you’re in North Iceland and want to go directly from Akureyri to our great Grímsey island. The most amazing journey would be a flight with Circle Air, with such amazing unbelievable scenery and pilots who know the fjord like the palm of their hands. We are so thrilled to be their partner and to be able to offer our guests their services:
Fly across the Arctic Circle! This tour takes you from Akureyri towards Grímsey Island, the vanguard of Iceland to the north.
Grimsey is a mere 30 minutes flight from Akureyri, with a beautiful scenery on the way and a fair chance to see whales (humpbacks) en-route, in addition to the spectacular Troll Peninsula.
Experience the natural habitat of puffins (summer only) and one of the last remaining true Icelandic fishing villages where you´ll receive your “Arctic Circle Crossing” badge before feasting on a sample of traditional Icelandic cuisine. It is served by local villagers and timed just before before heading back to shore (Akureyri)
We stop for 2 hours – total flight time is 1 hr (30 minutes back and forth)
