  • In January 1973, half of the town was destroyed by lava flow during the eruption of the Eldfell volcano. It threatened to close the town's harbour - main income source for the island. To prevent further damages, an operation was cunducted - sea water was used to cool the advancing lava, thus the harbor was saved.
  • Every summer on Heimaey Iseland come to nest around 8 million puffins (seabirds with brightly coloured beaks). Millions of other seabirds migrate to the island to feed and breed.
  • Heimaey is connected to mainland Iceland via Vestmannaeyjar Airport and also by a ferry.
  • Most of the locals live off fishing. Only during the island's annual festival, locals are allowed to catch a few puffins and eat them - at the festival or at home.
