The 3 hour Ferry ride (there and then again going back) was very much worth it to hike around this beautiful island and stand in the Arctic Circle. If you go in the summer - the Puffins are nesting in the cliffs.

I was a little obsessed with traveling above the Arctic Circle. This was one of the reasons I traveled to Iceland. I was not disappointed with the end result, but there were some organizational issues that a person should be aware of. I traveled with...More

Have you ever walked across the Arctic Circle? You can if you go to Grimsey. We visited Grimsey Island as part of our wedding/honeymoon in Iceland in October 2017. The Arctic Circle cuts through the island, so you can literally walk across it. Grimsey is...More

We did it ourselves, choosing Wednesday to take the ferry since it gave us the longest time on the island (approximately 5 hours). Other days only let you stay 1-3 hours, so check our ferry times before you go. We saw... More
