A happy, happy day 🇮🇸 🇮🇸 🇮🇸
Grímsey island is renowned for being Iceland's northernmost part and the only place in Iceland that straddles the Arctic Circle, making it an attractive destination for travelers seeking unique experiences. The ferry connection to the mainland plays an crucial role to the residents as well as visitors wanting to access the island's stunning natural landscapes, diverse birdlife, cultural heritage as well as the midnight sun.
Therefor it was great joy in Grímsey when it became clear that the ferry which has been undergoing maintenance for several weeks now would be back as of today.
In the summer, the ferry sails 5 days a week to Grímsey from Dalvík, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, and the journey takes about 3 hours each way. In addition, Norlandair flies two days a week on Tuesdays and Sundays.
You can learn more about transportation, sights, activities and accommodation, etc. on Grímsey website, see link
