Seydisfjodur

Seydisfjodur is a village in the Eastfjords of Iceland at the end of the fjord of the same name.  Heading into the fjord, the mountains on either side become higher, the water calmer, and the first signs of life appear in the form of lonely wooden houses on the water’s edge.

Seyðisfjörður originated in the mid-19th century when Danish merchants started trading in the fjord. The community grew when Norwegians set up a herring fishery between 1870 and 1900. Over time the herring fishing facilities expanded, and Seyðisfjörður grew into a thriving town. Today, the people living here still rely on fishing as their primary economy, but like all other areas in Iceland, tourism is on the incline as well.
