Take a trip back in history with this intimate exploration of quaint fishing settlements surround by incredible natural beauty.
Siglufjördur is a very scenic and historic fishing village, situated on the magnificent peninsula "Tröllaskagi" that with its high mountains and deep fjords and renowned for its beauty. During the summer, it is the mountains, the lake and the black sandy shores which call to visitors.
The Herring Museum in Siglufjörður is the largest seafaring and industrial museum in the country. The exhibits tell the tale of hunting and processing these “silver darlings”, and are housed in three widely differing premises. The museum received the European Museums Award, the Michletti Award, in 2004.
In this tour we drive from Akureyri along Eyjafjörður, visiting the fishing villages Dalvík and Ólafsfjörður, and to Siglufjörður. The same way back.
