Cruises from Siglufjordur
Siglufjordur (Siglufjörður) is a small fishing town situated on the shoreline of the 7 km long fjord of the same name. On both sides of the fjord snow topped mountains rise 600 – 800 m. The 2.3 km of colourful homes and buildings lie on the road that runs the periphery of the northern part of Iceland. The town grew from the herring industry in the 1940s and 1950s, and there are no herring today.
To keep the town in the loop of ground transport, over 10 km of tunnels were constructed recently to reach the neighbouring town to the east – quite a feat for a town of 1000 people.
