Seyðisfjörður

We left Southern Iceland after camping for two nights. The first night in the town of Vik, and the other in a town just north-east called Hofn.


We continued driving northeast until we found ourselves here...



Seyðisfjörður. A fjord skillfully carved by the ice age glacier, is distinguished by excellent harbour facilities and Norwegian heritage. Seyðisfjörður has been an important trading center from the nineteenth century up to modern times, due to natural harbor and proximity to the european continent. The colourful, Norwegian-style wooden houses, dating from the early years of the 20th. century render this village unique in Iceland.


This structure originally was a cattle barn, but has since been transformed and re-established itself as an artists home, and store front.
