A Visit to Hrisey Island

Hrísey lies in the outward reaches of Eyjafjörður and is the second largest island in Iceland. There are about 200 inhabitants on the island, living in a trim fishing village with paved streets, tidy gardens and a view of the surrounding mountains which can be equalled by few. The ferry, Sævar, sails between Hrísey and the mainland village of Ásskógssandur. The journey only takes about 15 minutes.
