The Arctic Circle crosses Iceland at the northernmost point on Grimsey island. As we cross the Arctic Circle, enjoy a fun ceremony with the staff, then take a walk toward the Orbis et Globus (Circle and Sphere) artwork that symbolizes the Circle. Amazing photo opportunities abound of the magnificent scenery along the way, along with wildlife like puffins, arctic terns, golden plovers and many more spectacular birds. Many of them nest on cliffs or right next to your footpath.
