Grimsey island crosses the Arctic Circle and is home to Iceland's northernmost settlement. This day tour takes you on the ferry Saefari from the harbour in Dalvik, a short way out of Akureyri, and into the hands of local guides on the island. The boat ride is an exciting affair in itself as you can often spot maritime creatures such as dolphins, humpback whales and even blue whales. Occasionally, they will 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.
