Siglufjörður is well worth a visit, surrounded by steep mountains it was at times the biggest fishing port in the Icelandic ´Herring adventure´, that catapulted Icelandic economy, and a center for the adventureous.
I went for the weekend to the north and spent a quiet night in this idyllic village this January. The fiord is surrounded by tunnels in both ends, high cliffs face the Sea of Greenland to the north.
Across the eastern tunnel lies Héðinsfjörður, an uninhabited fiord on the way to Akureyri. This part of the country is called "Tröllaskagi" (The Troll Peninsula). Be warned.
