Location

Siglufjörður, Northeast, Iceland

Siglufjörður (Sigló) is a beautiful historical fishing town with 1.300 inhabitants and is located in North Iceland, 1 hours drive from Akureyri. In Sigló you can find the famous award-winning Herring Era Museum, exellent hiking surroundings and newly opened resturants and hotels with good food and bars. During the summer it is the mountains, the sea and the black sandy shores which call to us. There is a wide selection of walks and hikes in both mountain and valley to tempt the visitor. It is possible to go sea angling and it can also be fun just fishing from the end of the pier. For golf enthusiasts there is a 9 hole golf course at Siglufjörður, and for swimmers, a nice swimming pool.

In the winter the town turns into a paradise for both those who love cross-country skiing or slalom skiing. In Sigló you can expect an exiting experience.
