At the Arctic Circle - Grimsey Island, Iceland

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by bobhoge, Jun 25, 2007.

  1. We stopped at Grimsey Island which lies about 25 miles north of "mainland" Iceland. It is a small island with a little village, mostly fishermen, with a population of just 155. We almost doubled the population during our visit.:rolleyes:

    It was about 10:30PM when it was time to go back to the ship and the sun would not set that night. Hours of great light on the mountains back on the mainland:

    On the way back to the ship, our zodiac driver found a sea cave to explore:

    These Kittiwakes were nesting on the edge of the sea cave, taken from the moving zodiac,
