The Sigló Stroll

Short on time? Wanting to stretch your legs after a long drive? Or would you just like to learn a little more about this beautiful town you’ve found yourself in? If this sounds like you, then you’re in the right place! Join us for a stroll and find out about the history of this picturesque place.

This tour is family-friendly, suitable for all and can be adapted to be wheelchair accessible. We highly recommend combining this tour with a stop at the Herring Era Museum, for a truly delightful day in town.

We depart every day at 11.00 from our office in Siglufjörður, and we’d be happy to arrange other times on request.
