Cruises from Grimsey Island
Grimsey Island, a part of Iceland, is home to one hundred humans and one million seabirds. It stands alone, seen far out on the horizon, just a blue cliff surrounded by the wide Arctic Ocean, about 40 km off the north coast of Iceland. Only five square kilometers in area, it is home to courageous fishermen and their families. The fishermen often venture in their small motorboats much further north on the Arctic Ocean, which often turns wild, with storms, frost, and waves that are up to 15 m in height.
Perhaps due to its isolation the island has acquired a long-standing reputation for being a bastion of chess-playing.
