Private Siglufjordur And Trollaskagi
Private Siglufjordur and Trollaskagi
The Trollaskagi peninsula located in northern Iceland between the fjords of Eyjafjordur and Skagafjordur. The peninsula is mountainous, with several peaks reaching over 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) above sea level, the tallest being Kerling. It is the part of Iceland with the highest elevation, outside the central highlands.
After meeting your local, friendly and knowledgeable representative at the pier, you will be escorted to your comfortable waiting transportation. Leave the port area and take a drive down the coast from Eyjafjordur to Siglufjordur, stopping to enjoy some time on the black sand beach at Olafsfjordur. This town is in the northeast of Iceland, located at the mouth of the fjord Eyjafjordur. This village is basically a fishing village today and like many towns and villages around the coastline in Iceland, the community came into existence at the end of the 19th century and developed mainly in the first half of the 20th century.
Travel next to Siglufjordur, a small fishing town in a narrow fjord with the same name, on the northern coast of Iceland. This historic fishing town gained fame and fortune as being linked to the ebb and flow of the fishing industry. A tiny shark fishing village in 1900, the town soon became one of the largest towns in Iceland and the undisputed capital of herring fishing in the Atlantic. The village is also home to the award-winning Herring era museum and recently the town was used in the series "Trapped".
Continue your day and stop at the villages of Hjalteyri and Dalvik. Hjalteyri is a very small fishing village on the western shores of Eyjafjordur where the buildings of the old herring factory are often used as a venue for art exhibitions during the summer months. In Dalvik, a seaside town located on the natural paradise of the Trollaskagi peninsula, discover a colorful and charming true fishing village. One of the many seaside towns in Iceland, the harbor in town is a large fishing and commercial port, including the departure point of Sæfari boat which serves the island of Grimsey.
You can round out this incredible day of sightseeing with a stop at Kaldi, Iceland's first microbrewery, where you can sample some of their fine brews. When the company was founded, Kaldi was producing 170,000 liters (over 26,000 gallons) per year, however, due to the demand they have added fermentation tanks and increased production in 700,000 liters (just under 185,000 gallons) per year. Today, many flavors are made including seasonal brews, like the red lager and chocolate porter for Christmas.
