    The island is home to the "Penguin of the North". This stunning bird can be seen in the thousands either sitting on their "homes" or swimming in the sea.
    The Atlantic Puffin is 28–34 centimeters in length, with a 50–60 cm wingspan. The male is generally slightly larger than the female, but they are colored alike. This bird is mainly black above and white below, with gray to white cheeks and red-orange legs. The bill is large and triangular, and during the breeding season is bright orange with a patch of blue bordered by yellow at the rear - a cute bird! However the puffins only stay on the island during the summer months. The best month to see Puffins is July.

    The Grimsey Ferry Saefari offers an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy a trip through the Eyjafjordur Bay, the view along the north coast and the possibility of spotting a variety of birds, seals and whales.
    Among the interesting areas on the way are Hrisey, the second largest island of the country, Olafsfjordur, a town on a fjord by the same name that branches off Eyjafjordur, Coves Fjordur, Island Flatey, Valley Flateyjardalur and the Skjalfanda Bay.
