                Crossing Polar Circle - Grimsey

                Cross the legendary Polar Circle and set sail for Grimsey, a little island located approximately 25 miles north of mainland Iceland. Formed from volcanic rock which has generated majestic basalt pillars, the island is a delight for travelers and photographers. The island has been inhabited since the Vikings came to Iceland, and legend says that it takes its name from the colonial sailor Grimur, who sailed from the region of Sogn, Norway. The site is home to a fabulous variety of wildlife.

                Day 8


                  Arrive in Isafjordur, a small town in the northwest of Iceland. The town used to have one of the largest fisheries in Iceland, but after several fishing restrictions passed in the 1980's, many of the inhabitants left Isafjordur to search for work elsewhere. Despite its size, small population, and historical isolation from the rest of the country, the town features an urban atmosphere.

                    In the morning, arrive in Reykjavik, Iceland's capital, and disembark. Transfer to the airport for your continued flights.
