Today National Geographic Explorer visited the small fishing town of Siglufjörður, where we visited the famous Herring Museum. Siglufjörður was a center of herring processing during the herring boom in the 1940s and 1950s. We were treated to a reenactment of the day-to-day life of a “herring girl” during that time.
National Geographic Explorer
In a whirl of basalt, waterfalls, lupine, sheep and puffins, we have explored but barely scratched the surface of what Iceland has to offer. Our time together aboard the National Geographic Explorer was all too short, but it has left a lasting impression and perhaps has planted a seed to return to this Land of Fire and Ice. One of our global explorers shared their impression with us in the form of a haiku. Green mountains, white sheep Purple lupines and blue streams Colors of Iceland Haiku by Veronica Luzine, age 13
