Grímsey Summer Tour on the Arctic Circle
The Grimsey Summer Tour is a day tour when we will meet you in Grímsey right after you’ve exited the ferry Sæfari. The boat ride (book seperately) is an excitement in itself, very often dolphins, humpback whales and even blue whales are spotted and even swim with the boat. The climate can be different from what you can expect on the mainland. You’ll get to know the history of Grimsey village and its inhabitants, cross the Arctic Circle and if weather and conditions allow, see the Orbis et Globus monument that is placed on the island. Light refreshments are included.
– A guided tour in Grímsey Island with a local guide
– Cross the Arctic Circle and get a unique certificate
– Light refreshments
– At around 10. August the Puffins will migrate south (and the Arctic Terns in September) so there will be no puffins on the island. In September to May we will focus on the stories of the islanders and see how they prepare for and survive the harsh winter elements so far in the north.
Good shoes, a warm sweater, a hat/beanie, a camera, your good mood 🙂 !

Book the ferry on the Samskip ferry website
Please note that the ferry does not sail on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and has a very short stop on Thursdays, so for those days you’ll have to arrange accommodation on the island (highly recommended!). Please let us know if you’ll arrive via plane on Tuesdays because the arrival is at 13:00, we will arrange the tour accordingly.
