Experience the elements like a local – first hand! We are very excited to offer you the best of the Arctic part of Iceland in a day!
The Arctic Grimsey Winter Tour is a unique experience during the off season. The seas can be rough during the winter months and the climate at sea and on the island 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, go to the Orbis et Globus monument. Light refreshments are included on the island.
The ferry is not included, please book your ferry ride seperately on Samskip website
A day in the Arctic is a day to remember!
– A guided tour in Grímsey Island with a local guide
– Cross the Arctic Circle and get a unique certificate
– Light refreshments
– During winter months there will be no Puffins or Arctic Terns on the island. In September through May we will focus on the stories of the islanders and see how they prepare for and survive the harsh winter elements so far up in the north.
Good shoes and warm clothes: A good coat, a warm sweater, a hat/beanie, gloves, a camera, your good mood 🙂 !
