Atlantic Puffins from Grimsey Island, Iceland 🇮🇸 after a successful foraging trip. They appear to enjoy resting up before feeding the kids. These birds have bills specially adapted for catching and holding multiple fish in an orderly arrangement, maximizing the efficiency of each trip to the sea. It's Tuesday but it's still #farawayfriday🐧 when I post my images from polar regions. Grimsey Island is right on the Arctic circle. Most of Iceland is below the Arctic circle. #iceland #🇮🇸#grimsey #grimseyisland #grímsey #puffin #puffins #atlanticpuffin #atlanticpuffins #seabirds

Anyone would think this was Greece not Iceland! 🇮🇸 #Iceland #Grimsey #travel #nature #cliffs

Puffins in Grimsey. Pink Iceland in the background. #puffin #Grimsey #icelandinphotos

Half in Europe half in the Arctic circle #iceland #grimsey #travel #arctic #bucketlist

Day2. It's Oleg's birthday. If you knew him, you would understand we had to find some non-touristic place that is the most difficult to reach. So... we found the most northern island, Grimsey, that straddles the Arctic Circle. It took us 3h by ferry to get there from dalvik. Some facts: There are about 60 people that live here, 2m birds, 200 sheep, 45 horses and no single tree on the island. Unbelievably the light day here is for almost 24h in summer and the shortest day is 2h15 min in winter time.
Grimsey's Cliffs along coastline are home to thousands of birds, including arctic terns and puffins (sometimes the first one attacked us). Puffins are magnificent vivid birds. We were lucky to hold one ☺️ guy who stayed in our hotel is a professional puffin-catcher 😂
The picturesque view of Iceland's mountains and fjords from Grimsey makes you hold your breath and get the feeling of freedom and peacefulness.
So that was fun, Happy birthday Oleg! #iceland #aroundiceland #landscape #puffin #birds #island #grimsey #freedom

Arctic selfie. No make up - only sunscreen (even if there's no sun and it's cloudy and windy - don't trust the weather, without protection you'll burn your face anyway, even after midnight). Я, конечно, фанат солнцезащитных средств, но к такому жизнь меня не готовила - оказывается, обгореть можно даже среди ночи во сне. Например, если кровать стоит рядом с окном и ты забыла его зашторить. В общем, чем севернее, тем активнее ведёт себя солнце. #amazingday #sunscreen #sunprotection #island #Grimsey #breathtaking #selfiemaniac #northofthenorth #iceland2017 #scandinaviaclub #visiticeland #iloveiceland #placeofmyheart #naturalbeauty #arcticcircle #homesweethome #greatweather #exploringnature #smallisland #icelandic #arctictrip #северныйполярныйкруг #исландия #остров #природарядом #необыкновенно #духзахватывает #красотыприроды #север #прогулка
