Grímsey is the northernmost island off the coast of Iceland, 41km from the mainland. All but the Southern shoreline consists of steep cliffs, with basalt in many parts. Although it lies on the Arctic Circle, the island enjoys a mild climate and supports enormous bird colonies. About 155 people live in Grimsey all year around, working in fishing, agriculture, and egg harvesting.
