We visited Videy Island on a cold but fairly dry January afternoon, there were not many others making the trip but we were very glad we did. The ferry only sails from Skarfabakki a few times a day in the winter in the early afternoon. The ferry terminal is easy to find if you follow the coast path from Reykjavik.... More

We took the ferry over on December 13, so mind you it was cold, but a sunny day and absolutely gorgeous. We walked to several of the sites, and saw some birds, geese, and lovely views. So peaceful. We had the best hot chocolate ever in the little cafe. A very different feel than 5 minutes across in Reykjavik city.... More

The ferry didn't stop!!! I'm told there was no mail or travelers so a stop was not necessary. So sorry that I missed it!

Makes you wonder why it is not inhabited now when the father of Reykjavik wanted to have his house there, and not down town.

Dont go there in winter as it is desolate and has nothing for families to do. Better to visit the island in the summer months !

It was winter and there was about 10 inches of snow on the Island. We took the ferry ride over.. Beautiful view of Reykjavik. The John Lennon Peace Image Memorial is on the Island. The house is well kept.

If you want more peace in peaceful Reykjavik you should take ferry to Videy island. There are nothing more than a single restaurant, Imagine Peace Tower and some tech buildings, but when the weather is pleasant you can walk around the island, watch the nature and take a deep breath od fresh air. In summer ferries depart every hour from... More

A perfect journey on a sunny day in Reykjavik. Also a prime location for a group to gather in summer even for dinner. Hiking around the islands (there are two of them, connected) is interesting but be advised to plan ahead and have a guide. This is where John Lennon´s Column of Peace is located. Almost forgot to arrive there... More

Caught the boat to Videy for a few hours which is enough time to walk around the island and appreciate the environment.
