From Akureyri we drive along the western shoreline of Eyjafjörður, the longest fjord in Northern Iceland. We will learn about the area and some of the fishing villages along the coast.

Our tour takes us through Héðinsfjörður, a small deserted fjord which has been isolated until recently when a tunnel was built from Ólafsfjörður to Siglufjörður fjords.

Upon arrival in Siglufjörður, we will do a little sightseeing before visiting The Herring Museum, where we will gain good insight into local coastal culture and heritage. 

Herring is one of last century's principal shapers of Icelanders' destinies. Without herring it is questionable whether the modern society that now exists in Iceland could ever have been developed.  On this tour we learn how this came about and how it shaped the culture and peoples life during last century.
