The Grímsey ferry Sæfari will be out of service due to maintenance for at least six weeks and today (17th March) is the last trip to and from the island for a while.

Repairs are likely to take 6-8 weeks, so it will not be possible to travel on the ferry again until in May. During this period, a fishing vessel will carry out cargo transport, four times a week.

Passenger transport will be handled by scheduled flights and number of departures increased from three to four per week.  Flights available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The stop in Grímsey is between 20 minutes to 2 hours depending upon the day. The flight costs from 22.500 ISK back and forth.

The flight is operated by Norlandair and operates from Akureyri Airport. More information can be found on the airline's website, see www.norlandair.is and here to Book a flight
