FERđ TIL GR═MSEYJAR - TRIP TO GRIMSEY ISLAND - MYNDIR

╔g var ß fer­alagi um Mřvatn fyrir stuttu og bau­st ■ß a­ skjˇtast til GrÝmseyjar me­ flugfÚlaginu Mřflug. Írn Sigur­sson flugma­ur veitti mÚr og mˇtordrekanum h˙saskjˇl ß flugvellinum ß Mřvatni vi­ ReynihlÝ­ eftir erfitt flug frß Hrauneyjum yfir Hßlendi­ nˇttina ß­ur.

Flugst÷­in Ý GrÝmsey er ekki stˇr, en fer­amenn hafa l÷ngum sˇtt ■essa merku eyju heim. Ůegar von er ß flugi til eyjunnar, ■ß ■arf a­ reka upp fugl af brautinni og ■urfa flugmenn jafnvel a­ beita sÚrstakri tŠkni Ý flugtaki og lendingu til a­ for­ast a­ fß fugl Ý hreyfilinn. ═ GrÝmsey er margt a­ sjß og bo­i­ er upp ß lei­s÷gn me­ fer­afˇlk ■ar sem m.a. er fari­ me­ fˇlki­ yfir bauginn, Ý kirkjuna, a­ vitanum, Ý fiskverkun (smelli­ ß mynd til a­ sjß fleiri myndir)

Fiskvinnsla og smßbßta˙tger­ er stˇr atvinnuvegur Ý GrÝmsey, enda ekki langt a­ fara til a­ komast ß mi­in. Fer­a■jˇnusta hefur aukist miki­ og eru regluleg flug og hŠgt a­ taka ferju frß DalvÝk. (smelli­ ß mynd til a­ sjß fleiri myndir)

HÚr mß sjß minnismerki sem reist var Ý nafni Willard Fiske. En hann var velgj÷r­ama­ur eyjunnar og styrkti Ýb˙a me­ řmsum hŠtti. Me­al annars gaf hann eyjarskeggjum skßkbor­ enda GrÝmseyingar slyngir skßkmenn. (smelli­ ß mynd til a­ sjß fleiri myndir)

Miki­ er um lunda Ý GrÝmsey. ═ klettabeltinu fyrir framan kirkjuna var gott a­ sko­a lundann og ■ar var lÝka klettur sem var eins og mannsh÷fu­ Ý laginu. (smelli­ ß mynd til a­ sjß fleiri myndir)

═ eyjunni b˙a r˙mlega 100 manns og er lÝtil kirkja ß sta­num, Mi­gar­akirkja sem ■jˇna­ er frß DalvÝk. H˙n var ß sÝnum tÝma bygg­ ˙r rekavi­ (1867) og svo endurbygg­ 1956.

Flying over the Polar circle to Puffin island GrÝmsey 66░ North of Iceland http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMhabEmH-Wo

GrÝmsey is a small island 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Iceland, situated directly on the Arctic Circle. The island constitutes the hreppur (municipality) GrÝmseyjarhreppur, which is part of the county Eyjafjar­arsřsla. The population is approximately 100; the only settlement is SandvÝk.

Geography and climate GrÝmsey is the northernmost inhabited Icelandic territory; the islet of Kolbeinsey lies further north, but is uninhabited. The closest land is the island of Flatey, Skjßlfandi, 39.4 kilometres (24.5 mi) to the south. There are steep cliffs everywhere except on the southern shoreline. GrÝmsey has an area of 5.3 square kilometres (2.0 sq mi), and a maximum altitude of 105 metres (344 ft). Despite the northerly latitude, the climate is generally mild, due to the North Atlantic Current which brings warm water from the Gulf of Mexico. A maximum temperature of 26░C (79░F) has been recorded, which equals that of the much more southerly capital ReykjavÝk. Though treeless, the vegetation cover is rich, consisting of marshland, grass, and moss, and the island is home to many birds, in particular auks.

Economy and society The principal industrial activity is commercial fishing. Agriculture and collecting seabirds' eggs are also common. GrÝmsey is also a popular tourist destination for visitors who wish to experience the Arctic Circle. The island is served by regular ferry and aircraft passenger services from the mainland.[1] The church on GrÝmsey was built from driftwood in 1867 and renovated in 1956. It is within the parish of Akureyri. The island also features a community center and a school from kindergarten to Grade 8. Beyond this age, students travel to Akureyri for further education. The island has acquired a long-standing reputation for being a bastion of chess-playing. On learning this, the American scholar and keen chess player Willard Fiske took a protective interest in GrÝmsey in the 1870s, sending supplies, supporting the economy and leaving money in his will, though he never once visited. A local legend holds that the Arctic Circle runs exactly through the middle of the bed of GrÝmsey's priest. The fact that the circle shifts by a few meters per year makes this unlikely.
