Iceland is more than just a country with gorgeous natural landscapes. There are also many beautiful and interesting small towns. Siglufjörður is one of those towns. This morning, we learned about the fascinating history of the area at the Herring Era Museum—the country’s largest maritime museum and the recipient of a European Museum Award. Afterward, we wandered around the colorful port and then went on a horseback riding tour in the area surrounding Skjaldarvik. Icelandic horses are a one-of-a-kind, pure breed, descended from stock brought to the country by the first Nordic settlers in the 9th century.
