Siglufjörður in North Iceland has 1200 inhabitants and was the capital of herring fishing up to the late 60’s. These glory days have been immortalized in an impressive award-winning museum called The Herring Era Museum, which is housed in five historical buildings and occupies a large part of town. The magnificent luxurious Sigló Hotel dominates the waterfront and together with two popular restaurants, Hannes Boy and Kaffi Rauðka, form a colorful backdrop to the marina village, which is a popular outdoor area in the summer.
