Arctic Tern by the Arctic Circle

The first arctic terns of the season were spotted in Grímsey yesterday.


The beauty of the springtime, courtship rituals, nest building, mating, nesting and the first eggs.

Sunny days, warm winds and the grass is turning green.

How to get here

  • The flight from Reykjavík to Akureyri takes about 40 minutes and 4-5 hours to drive. The city busses are free of charge and we have no parking meters, just remember to get a parking-clock, available at the tourist information in HOF, at banks, some shops and gasoline stations.
