Herring museum Siglufjörður BL09-06-04


The remote fishing village of Siglufjörður was once famous for herring. At the height of the season the town attracted thousands of migrant workers from all over Iceland to process the catch. The herring museum provided accommodation to some of the women who gutted and salted the fish. The town will become more accessible when the tunnel from Ólafsfjörður is completed. Property prices have already started to rise!
