The French history of Fáskrúðsfjörður is reflected in the French Museum housed in the beautiful restored historical buildings, the Doctor‘s House and the French Hospital, which are now both part of the Foss Hotel. The museum is an avant-garde exhibition in a tunnel under the main road and well worth a visit.

Fáskrúðsfjörður is twinned with Gravelines in France, confirming the shared heritage between the two towns. If you missed out on seeing the northern lights while in Iceland, don‘t despair. Auroras Iceland is a delightful photographic exhibition of the northern lights in Fáskrúðsfjörður created by photographers, Jónína and Jóhanna. Open from 15 May to 30 September.
