Grimsey Island, Iceland

Grimsey Island can be found approximately 40 kilometers north of the coast of Iceland. It stands alone on the horizon, surrounded only by the deep blue of the Arctic Ocean. Inhabitants on the island live in a small harbor village that focuses on the fishing industry. These villagers live a modern life on their small island with a sound harbor and a good school for their children. In addition to this prosperous community, Grimsey Island is also home to chorus of seabirds that never stop singing. When nighttime finally reaches the island, these birds make their nests in the cliffs all around the island. While there is no night in the summer, daylight is very short in the winter months.
