Garðarr Svavarsson is considered by many to be the first Scandinavian to live in Iceland, although he is said to have stayed only for one winter. He married a woman from the Hebrides. During the voyage to these isles (in the 860) he sailed into a storm at Pentland Firth. This storm pushed his ship far to the north until he reached the eastern coast of Iceland. He circumnavigated the island, becoming the first known person to do so and thus establishing that the landmass was an island.
