Akureyri - The pearl Hrísey Island

Duration: 4 hours and 30 minutes / Difficulty: Very easy

Hrísey is a wonderful island in the Akureyri fjord. it is home to wide variety of birds, suck as the ptarmigan, wich changes colours from winter to summer and is never hunter on the island. The friendly people of Hrísey are self-sufficent and open minded. There are a few automobiles in the island, but instead the inhabitants use old tractors that are specially equipped for transporting people. A good example of how they truly have a unique way of doing things. The tour begins with a one hour sail from Akureyri to Hrísey. When ashore a local guide greets us and takes us on a tractor tour of the island. We then have a feast in the local resturant enjoying the catch from the rich fishing grounds around the island. The keyword here is fresh! A program of singalong songs and pure fun until the return trip.
