Jul 12, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer
National Geographic Explorer came alongside in some much-needed sunshine in the town of Akureyri. With the help of shuttle buses, guests were given the morning to explore the city and enjoy the weather. Highlights included the botanical gardens—which were surprisingly vibrant and rich in flora given their northerly location—and a church from the 1940s. The ship then headed to Siglufjörður, once home to a booming herring fishing industry. We spent the afternoon diving back into the lives of the herring girls at the museum.
