We are very excited to offer you the best of the Arctic part of Iceland in a day!
The Grimsey Summer Day Tour is a day tour from Dalvik harbor (30 min drive from Akureyri) where you’ll take the ferry Sæfari to Grimsey Island where you’ll meet the guides at Arctic Trip. The boat ride 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.
The ferry to Grímsey leaves from Dalvík at 9:00. You will arrive at the island at 12:00. The tour starts at 12:30 and lasts till 15:00. You’ll have time to look around on your own after the tour before the ferry departs at 16:00 or 17:00. The ferry then arrives in Dalvík again at 19:00 or 20:00 in the evening. There’s free all day parking in Dalvík harbor for your car.
A day in the Arctic is a day to remember!
– Ferry entry from Dalvík, departing at 9:00 and back from Grímsey at 17:00
– A guided tour in Grímsey Island with a local guide

– At around 10. August the Puffins will migrate south (and the Arctic Terns in September) so there will be no puffins on the island after August 10th. 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 🙂 !
