Over the past few years, the area known as Fjallabyggð which includes the villages Ólafsfjörður and Siglufjörður, has enjoyed an impressive growth in coastal culture, preservation of national heritage and diversification of tourism facilities. In October 2010 the two townes were finally joined with a 10 (7+ 3) km long tunnel through the beautyful, formerly isolated, Héðinsfjörður.

Known for its great winters and mild weather, Siglufjörður is the northernmost town in Iceland, surrounded by towering mountains all around. The town is most famous for having been the Capital of the North Atlantic Herring Fishery from 1903-1965, flourishing as a vibrant centre of culture in the north. Today, a large percentage of the town?s 1400 residents are still employed in the fishing industry. There are three large fish processing factories here, alongside several smaller operations, all producing a range of products as diverse as high quality frozen prawns and fish meal. Other principal employers are the banks, hospital, nursery, elementary school and music school.

Siglufjörður draws increasing numbers of tourists each summer, all of them here to take in the breathtaking beauty of the fiord and mountains, while enjoying the town?s museums and festivals. The last decade has seen the town renew its status as a premiere cultural centre and destination for tourists and Icelanders alike.

The main cultural attraction in the town is The Herring Era Museum. Winner of the Icelandic Museum Award in 2000, The Herring Era Museum was nominee for the 2004 European Museum of the Year Award and winner of the 2004 Micheletti Prize as Best New Industrial Museum in Europe. This outstanding museum is the third largest in after the National Museum and the Reykjavik Art Museum . Its three large exhibit buildings tell the stories of the people who worked in the herring industry, of the factories and products and of the fishing and fishing boats. The museum is also a centre for ongoing concerts and art exhibitions.

Around the corner from Herhús, guests will find The Gold and Watchmaker Workshop, a small museum housed in its original location from 1929. The museum is a workshop and shop showcasing dozens of watches and clocks, as well as silverwork, tools and equipment. A unique and remarkable museum not to be missed!

The Township of Siglufjörður owns a large collection of art representative of the Icelandic visual arts scene of the 1960s through the 1980s. These works can be found on display at a number of locations in the town, including the Town Hall, the District Magistrate?s office, the hospital and the schools.

Summers in Siglufjörður are a time of festivals. Each July, the town hosts an annual Folk Music Festival with participants from around the world giving concerts, lectures and workshops. At the heart of this popular festival is the town?s newly opened Museum of Icelandic Folk Music, an education and information centre located in the restored home of Iceland?s greatest recorder and collector of Icelandic folk music and folklore. Each August, history comes to life during the Herring Festival, with outdoor herring salting demonstrations at the Museum and lively singing, dancing and music.

Siglufjörður offers excellent opportunities for outdoor sports and recreation, from bird-watching and hiking to football, golf and horseback riding. The town also has a gymnasium, indoor swimming pool and a workout gym.

In Ólafsfjörður there is. Fishermen?s Festival in June, Blues festival in July and wild blueberry days in August. During the summer you can go whale watching with Northsailing.
