Ever want to get away from EVERYTHING? (6 Photos)

This is Elliðaey Island off the coast of Iceland. It was given to Bjork by the government in 2001 for bringing international attention (tourism) to Iceland. Elliðaey is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful islands in the world.

    A bit too secluded for my liking but it's cool nevertheless.

        nevertheless is totally a word

  • Fjalar

    I about had a heart attack when i saw this. I live in Vestmannaeyjar near Elliðaey. It's in my back yard and I smile to look at it every day.

    Chive on from a very small archipelago off the south coast of Iceland 🙂

      you really do speak engrish?

      • Wavien


      • Shutup

        I bet he speaks "engrish" a hell of a lot better than you speak Icelandic. I've got money that says you can't even pronounce the name of the island….

    • Jay

      thats awesome, you're lucky as shit. haha 🙂

      • Jen

        i thought it was funny, dumberdore.

  • kevguy

    really? thats not just a research building? bjork is suddenly some kind of superhero?

    • Katrin

      believe it or not, Bjork is a national icon in our country. she would be equivalent to your Modonna (in the 80's and 90's of course)

      • kevguy

        um i know how famous Bjork is, thank you Icelandic ambassador. and Madonna is internationally known as well, she's not just an American phenomenon. I'm referring to this remote island having a legit house on it.

        • Tyler

          well congratulations lets be a d!@k about it…. she gave you a nice answer to your question so ok and move on.

          • Tyler

            *So just say ok and move on.*

            you are unsuccessful at using that over-used comment. GTFO

        • Naz1962

          Lol, there actually IS a delete button. Check it out 😉

  • Wolfram

    The toboganning in winter would be epic!!!!

  • figurefour

    That house is probably just a decoy. Bjork has the entire island hollowed out into a giant underground lair. At least… that's what I would do.

  • kirish14

    When it snows…greatest sledding hill of all time.

  • Dirty Dingus

    Maybe they should give it to Fergie….and tell her to stay there.

    • Beth Vogel

      Supply it with a bunkbed and tell Christina Aguilera to go with her.

  • Jason

    I would like to cardboard slide that….if I was 12 again

  • mr bucket

    What is this, AN ISLAND FOR ANTS?

    • Geshko

      How is Bjork even going to fit in the building!!!???

      • sorryaboutbeingaAss

        it has to be at least 3 times bigger then that

  • Bjork's ad djork.

    Hopefully Bjork gets trapped on that island so we don't have to tolerate her weird music.

  • dielon

    did u guys post this last year, or is that just me

  • Phondo

    Strange that it can only be shot from one side.

  • fishnomz


  • Danny P

    Couple hours on The Chive is more influential than Wikipedia. Love it.

  • ely whitley

    By whom? This post is a bit weird… Bjork is a bit weird too so it all balances out. The REAL question has to be: BJORK- would you?

    • that_weed_guy


    • Dirty Dingus

      Yes…but probably just once. As long as I could escape whatever contraption she was using.

    • Lilja

      Undoubtedly, yes!

  • Nick

    firstly, i would just like to say…. WIN

  • ryecrash

    Kicked soccerball out of bounds = gone forever.

  • davisrj

    It's got a fucking built in mega half pipe!!!

  • sceneitB4

    Ever heard Bjork sing? That's enough motivation to get her isolated.

  • ohmyguinness

    #6 Anyone for a game of Bocce Ball?
