Viewing single post of blog Iceland Expedition

On Friday I took the ferry to Grimsey Island, which is 3 hours by boat North of mainland Iceland. The weather was fantastic and I was able to hike all around the small island in the 4 hours I had before the return ferry. 90 people live there, and most work in the fishing industry.

The island is home to thousands of sea birds like arctic terns, gulls, razorbills, eider ducks and puffins. There were puffins living all along the cliffs around the island and even more out to sea fishing. I had really been looking forward to seeing puffins during my trip and there were thousands of them on Grimsey.

I followed to coast line heading North to the top most point of the island, taking me into the Arctic Circle. It is the furthest North I have ever been.
