At the heart of the Arctic Coast Way is a coastline rich with
culture and activities – the capital of North Iceland and
a string of fishing towns, harbors and ports are linked by
a breathtaking route of cliff roads, mountain tunnels, glacial
river, ferries, and bridges across fjords. This is the gateway
to Grímsey Island and the Arctic Circle.

Leave the tourists behind and become a traveler through this compelling,
a mysterious landscape that changes dramatically with the
seasons – from its summer residents and millions of birds
to the emptiness, darkest skies and absolute silence of
winter. Whenever you come you’ll find deep peace, solitude
and contemplation inspired by distant views and the echoes
and footprints of Nature and history.
