The ferry departs from the fishing village of Dalvik at 9:00 and takes you on a three-hour journey to Grimsey Island. We’ll arrive at our destination at around 12:00. Once there you can either go off and explore this amazing and secluded place by yourself or join the professionally guided tour by one of our expert local guides (optional extra not included in the fee).
The ferry will then depart from Grimsey at 17:00 (16:00 on Sundays).
One of our friendly local tour guides meets us as we disembark the ferry and then takes us around the island of Grimsey. The tour begins with a traditional local lunch in the main town before we head out into the unknown in search of the best birdwatching spots on the island.
Your guide will tell you all about the local culture of Grimsey and countless bird species that call the island home. This includes the nesting grounds of the adorable puffins, whose monogamy and cute features have made them a firm favorite around the world. You’ll also learn all about the many strange traditions that have developed on this remote Arctic island.
At the end of the tour, we’ll provide you with light refreshments that you can enjoy amidst serene and beautiful nature. We’ll also provide you with an official certificate stating that you have crossed the Arctic Circle.
