Iceland's northernmost town, Siglufjörður, is a historic fishing town whose fame and fortune has always been linked to the ebb and flow of the fishing industry. Originally a tiny shark-fishing village in 1900, Siglufjörður soon became one of the largest towns in Iceland and was the undisputed capital of herring-fishing in the Atlantic at the time. Although the herring has long since disappeared, the town bears the distinct imprint of the 'Herring Era'. Nicknamed Siglo, it sits at the heart of the narrow fjord, beneath towering mountains.

Enjoy a guided kayaking paddle along the coastline, exploring monuments from the herring era and taking in beautiful views of the town.
