Siglufjörður, Iceland

Aug 09, 2017 - National Geographic Orion


This morning we arrived in the quaint little town of Siglufjörður in northern Iceland, which used to be the centre of the Icelandic herring industry. A light rain fell onto our shoulders as we walked into town, but it did not dampen our spirits as we learned all about the fascinating herring industry from the enthusiastic locals. While National Geographic Orion repositioned to our next port of call, Akureyri, many of us decided to take the opportunity to go horseback riding on the famous Icelandic horses. What a great day in Iceland!
