Cultural Tours in Siglufjörður

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.

Throughout the 1900s, Siglufjörður experienced massive growth and became one of Iceland’s most significant herring fishing towns. Let us recreate that world around you, whilst also sharing the modern-day highlights and attractions of this charming town.

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.


Duration: approximately one hour

Price: 3.900 Isk per person (min. 2 participants)




We also offer tours to the Hvanneryrarskál valley – where climbing the 150m (around 490ft) to the old re-transmission station is rewarded with excellent views across the fjord, plenty of cultural insight into the town’s history, as well as the chance to enjoy a uniquely charming glacial valley.

The trail to Hvanneyrarskál is a wide gravel track, which is comfortable to walk on. Nevertheless, we recommend wearing good, comfortable walking shoes (or boots if you like) and bringing a small bottle of water.

This tour is available on request – get in touch at or use our enquiry form.
