NANUQ has stopped in Grimsey in the early afternoon today for a brief call. She will be departing, this time for Greenland, after a few hours. Grimsey is a small  island (in fact, the northermost element of Iceland), with a population of less than 100 residents, located about 40 km north of the closest shore of mainland. The Arctic Circle crosses the island, cutting it more or less in two halves. It features a green landscape and high cliffs. The boat’s crew was allowed to disembark and take a brief visit to the area.
