Sæfari offers scheduled trips from Dalvík to Grímsey.  The islands are known for their palatial scenery and diverse bird life and have over the past few years gained a reputation as charming and popular tourist destinations. The Arctic Circle runs right through the middle of Grímsey and all those who step over the Circle can receive a special, illuminated certificate to confirm it.

Grímsey is Iceland´s northernmost inhabited island and home to around 100 persons, most of whom are employed in the fishing industry. The 100 metre high cliffs on the island´s east coast are the nesting place of many species of birds and one of the best sites in the country for birdwatching. Plus, a view of the midnight sun in Grímsey is simply unforgettable.

On the website Iceland Travel Tips, passengers can comment on their trip to Grimsey.
