Don’t miss the rare opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle by air and visit the northernmost inhabited island of Iceland.

Gaze out in wonder as your pilot whisks you far above the stunning landscape during a 30-minute light aircraft flight.

Grímsey covers an area of only 2 square miles, so you can immerse yourself in its fascinating folklore and legend. The island is treeless but covered in rich vegetation and the climate is surprisingly mild, supporting agriculture as well as commercial fishing.

As you explore on foot, your knowledgeable guide will show you the most scenic spots. Cameras at the ready – you won’t want to miss a thing. Marvel at the sheer cliffs housing huge colonies of birds in summer. If the time is right, you might see the locals abseil in search of the eggs that are considered a delicacy.

Congratulations! To mark your crossing of the Arctic Circle, you’ll receive a certificate to treasure long after your breathtaking flight back to Akureyri.
