Flight to Iceland

Grimsey

Grímsey, an independent administrative borough, is the island nearest to Iceland, and the Arctic Circle runs straight through it. The island is 5.3 km² in size and lies about 70 km from the coast. It is only possible to approach Grímsey from the south. The island is covered with vegetation, and at its highest point reaches 105 m above sea-level.

The inhabitants of Grímsey number about 115, and most live from fishing. Farming is also an important part of life on the island, as are such activities as bird-hunting and egg-collecting. A great number of birds come to the island in the summer.

It is possible to get to Grímsey either by plane or by boat. Boat trips around the island are also available, during which islanders discuss the island's history and guide visitors around its places of interest.

There is a good guesthouse, with a restaurant, on the island.

Grímsey has long been a destination for tourists, and islanders show them a warm welcome. All those who come to the island receive a special certificate for having crossed the Arctic Circle.
