INFO - NORTH ICELAND
Siglufjörður offers a variety of interesting and enjoyable things to do and see - both for the tourist and for those in search of some outdoor activity.
The winter turns the town into a paradise for the skier and is a dream come true for the outdoor enthusiast. Here they have a choice of trying some cross-country skiing, slalom, skating, or zipping across the snow on a snowmobile.
During the summer, it is the mountains, the lake and the black sandy shores which call to us, and there is a wide selection of walks and hikes in both mountain and valley to tempt the visitor. A few hours walking through the area's rugged landscape gives one the chance to savour the peace and tranquillity which emanates from these natural elements.
The recreational possibilities are almost endless; it is possible to go sea angling or angling in the waters of Hólsá river - and we must not forget that it can also be fun just fishing from the end of the pier. Midnight sails and trips across the Arctic Circle can be arranged as well. It is possible to organise special activities for those who so wish, such as combining a walking and a sailing trip by e.g. walking out along Héðinsfjörður fiord then returning home by sea. For golf enthusiasts there is a 9 hole golf course at Siglufjörður, and for swimmers, a good swimming pool.
The Síldarminjasafnið herring museum is the largest marine and industrial museum in Europe. It is housed in three widely differing premises where the visitor can become acquainted with the pursuit of the "silver darlings" and the processing of that valuable commodity. Síldarminjasafnið received the European Museums Award, the Michletti Award, in 2004. The Folk Music Center is also to be found in Siglufjörður.
We would require respect and consideration as this is a family home.
I have recently retired from my job as a Gallery shop manager at the National Gallery of Iceland. My husband and I moved to Siglufjörður and bought a two story house, were are renting out the main floor to Airbnb guests. We like to travel and meet people from around the world.
