"Hrísey" Iceland Off The Beaten Path Tip by isolina_it

Iceland Off The Beaten Path: 174 reviews and 214 photos


During our whale-whatching day the boat stopped for a break at Hrísey.
Hrísey is the second largest island off the coast of Iceland and the chief employment of the islanders is fishing and fish processing.
In latter years tourist service has become increasingly important. All birds on the island are protected and it is quite common to see wild birds walking on the streets. On Hrísey are a church, a guesthouse, a restaurant and a swimming pool.
