Transfer to Akureyri airport to board a light aircraft and enjoy a 30-minute scenic flight over Iceland's picturesque northern region.
Bring your spirit of adventure as you cross the Arctic Circle to visit the remote island of Grímsey -- population 155. Only three square miles in size, Grímsey is green and grassy on the top, and surrounded by steep shoreline cliffs. You'll hear colorful tales illuminating the local life and culture during a highly informative guided walk on the island.
The Arctic Circle passes through Grímsey -- you will receive a souvenir certificate to prove that you have crossed it.
Please note: This is a walking tour. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations. There are some inclines to negotiate and rough grass/mud/gravel paths. Wear sturdy non-skid walking shoes. The walk to the Arctic Circle crossing can be very strenuous. Guests opting to stay behind must remain at the airstrip. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion. Outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. Many species of birds migrate away from Grímsey from mid-August so bird sightings may be limited after this time. Aircraft used are Twin Otters, Piper Chieftains or Fokker 50, not exclusive to Seabourn guests. Tour operates rain or shine, but may be cancelled by the operator/airline in the event of extremely bad weather or unsuitable conditions. Parents traveling with children under the age of 3 must rent a child's car seat from the tour operator; please see the Destination staff on board. You cannot use your child's car seat from home in Iceland. Tour numbers are final 48 hours before the ship's arrival at Akureyri; a 100% cancellation fee applies thereafter.
