There couldn't be a more Hidden Holiday destination than Grímsey Island off the coast of Iceland. Technically located inside the Arctic Circle, there is something mysterious and exotic about this humble and quiet retreat. Enjoy a bit of rural solitude, stunning landscapes and colorful skies with a car rental from Keflavik International Airport to tour Grímsey.
Though a holiday in the Arctic Circle might not sound so warm and inviting the temperatures of Grímsey may surprise you. Thanks to warmth from the Gulf of Mexico transported along the Atlantic Current, Grímsey features a pleasantly mild climate. The island is a place of colorful marshlands and dramatic cliffs, where you can easily spot numerous species of arctic birds (but few humans). The population of little Grímsey is only around 90, leaving plenty of untouched nature for you to explore by 4x4 car hire in Grímsey.
You won't find as many organized tours, planned activities, or other touristy things during your Hidden Holiday on Grímsey by car rental. However, it is the perfect place to enjoy nature photography, hiking, bird watching, and other free-spirited activities. The Island is well known as a bastion of chess-playing, probably because it has the perfect atmosphere for this kind of focused relaxation.
Getting to Grímsey with your car rental from Keflavík International Airport is easy on the ferry service from Dalvik. The journey is only around three hours and tickets are very affordable, with half price rates for teens and seniors and free tickets to children under 12. Enjoy a family stay on Grimsey with the fun and freedom of your own 7 seater car rental and save with the unbeatable prices from CarHIreHoliday.com.
