This remote and beautiful island with its local church built from driftwood, is steeped in folklore and legend. The island's sheer cliffs are home to huge colonies of sea birds and in summer, the intrepid islanders will abseil down the cliff faces to collect the eggs that are considered a local delicacy. The present settlement is located on the southern and western parts of Grimsey - most of it around the little harbour which has been much improved during the last few years thanks to the transportation of large rocks from the mainland. In 1793 the island was almost abandoned when a disease killed all but 6 of the male population. The remaining 6 went on a mission to the mainland in order to fetch “back-up”. We will end this tour by visit the Church in Grímsey where we will enjoy local performance.
