Višey Island is full of fun and next on the summer program is a family event that goes under the name The day of the Settlers, treasure hunt and kites.
We have teamed up with the scout group Frumbyggjar (Settlers) to invite guests of all ages to put themselves in the shoes of settlers, take part in a treasure hunt in the form of orientation and encourage all kite owners to come to Višey Island in an attempt to brake the Icelandic record in kite flying that was set on Višey in 2010.
Together with our guests the scouts will raise a little Settlers village and teach participants how to start a fire and other necessary survival skills like roasting hot dogs and popping popcorn on an open fire.
