Not So Remote Islands I Have Visited: An Afternoon on Videy Island

Following up on my Lokrum post I’m sharing some photos from another little island I happened upon on my travels. This time I want to focus on the lil rock called Viðey or Videy. This small island is a 5 – 10 minute boat ride from Reykjavik and makes a great tip for a day out and to escape the crazy Reykjavik life. Ok, that last bit is obviously a joke because the city centre was pretty chilled out (aside from Friday + Saturday nights).

On the island you can walk one of the many hiking trails, have a warm drink at the restaurant or attempt a picnic in summer, see a church from 1774 with the original interior inside, spot Puffins and other birds and visit the Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono, which is an official landmark for Reykjavik. So if in the evening you see a beam light going all the way up in the sky, don’t worry this is not someone from outer space trying to say hello … it’s just the Peace lights.

Have you been to Videy, or any similar little island gems?
