Iceland’s northenmost town, Siglufjörður, is a historic fishing town who’s fame and fortune has always been linked to the ebb and flow of the fishing industry. A tiny shark fishing village in 1900, Siglufjörður soon became one of the largest towns in Iceland and the undisputed capital of herring fishing in the Atlantic. Although the herring has disappeared, the town bears the distinct imprint of “The Herring Era”. Often called Siglo, the town sits at the heart of the narrow fjord, beneath towering mountains.
Although the town had been in a decline since in the 60s in recent years Siglufjordur has been blooming again and is now considered to be amongst Iceland’s most beautiful villages.
