We first conducted a Grimsey Expedition in 2009 in order to try to dive with seabirds. We were amazed by the amazing visibility and the abundance of birds diving all around us. Since then we have been doing this tour every year at least once.
This tour combines the 3 Day Strıtan & Silfra Tour with 3 days on the most nothern inhabited island of Iceland - Grimsey. On this tour we will dive the geothermally heated river Litla á and will explore the geothermal chimneys (Strıtan), both the big and the small ones and marvel on the beauty of Icelands fresh water fissures such as Silfra and the newly discovered ones near Ásbırgi up North. Grimsey is the most northern inhabited island in Iceland and lies exactly on the arctic circle. Its a fantastic experience to come there and get to know the society of only 115 people. At the time when we are there, there will be millions of seabirds nesting in the steep cliffs and apart from observing them on land we plan to dive with them.
On this tour we will also see many of Icelands amazing on land sights, such as the waterfall Goğafoss, the bird cliffs of Grimsey and the National Park Thingvellir. In 2012 & 2013 we will have a couple of scheduled tours for individuals to book into. Please check our Tour calendar 2012 & 2013
