Siglufjörður & the Coastal Culture Holiday Special

Herring, Leafbread & Holiday Lights

During this Holiday Special day tour we explore authentic Icelandic holiday traditions in the Eyjafjörður Fjord Area. We travel to the town of Siglufjörður, along one of Iceland’s most beautiful coastlines, on the edge of the mountainous Tröllaskagi Peninsula, and enjoy some unique views towards the North Atlantic. We will drive through three fishing villages on our way and enjoy the overwhelming Christmas light decorations. The tour ends at the Laufabrauðssetur (The Leafbread Center) in Akureyri were we get to know, and taste, the strange tradition of deep fried flatbread, a local custom that is considered a must during Christmas.
