This competition will take place on the 6th of June and it is the first competition ever in Heimaey!
To get to the island you need to go with a ferry called Herjólfur. The harbor is called Landeyjahöfn and is ~2 hours away from Reykjavík. It is possible to take a bus from there. You can order tickets to the ferry here - https://www.seatours.is/ .
You can check out booking.com or airbnb.com for information about hotels and other places to stay in over night.
Our goal with the schedule is to have events that were not held at Icelandic nationals.

Þetta mót verður haldið 6. júni og er það fyrsta mótið á Heimaey frá upphafi!
Til þess að komast á eyjuna þarft þú að fara með ferjunni Herjólfi. Hann er staðsettur í Landeyjahöfn og er u.þ.b. tveggja klukkustunda keyrsla frá Reykjavík til Landeyjahafnar. Hægt er að taka strætó á milli staða.
