Siglufjörður is the perfect place to experience a tasteful treasure: herring. The beautiful building Róaldsbrakki was a formerly fish salting station. Now, it is the location of the Sildarminjasafn (Herring Era Museum).
Step in and experience the life of a herring worker in the late 1910s. See the tiny rooms where they slept, the factory offices and the herring salting lines. Up to 10 000 workers lived in Siglufjörður during the high peak of the Herring period. Back then, the town was named "Klondike of the Atlantic".
Old songs, herring girls and schnapps
Next, it's time to enjoy a show with the herring girls. They will sing the old herring songs (feel free to sing along), serve you herring and Brennivín, the traditional Icelandic schnapps. After the show, you will have time to visit all three of the museum buildings, and learn more about life in Iceland during the Herring era.
Included: Museum visit, show, taste of herring and schnapps
