By morning, we reach the fjord town of Siglufjördur, once the hub of the global herring industry, which is now enjoying a rebirth in popularity. Here, we’ll learn about the golden age of herring during a trip to the award-winning Herring Era Museum. Located on the town’s vibrant harborfront, the Herring Era Museum’s multiple exhibits illustrate the fascinating history of this important industry. Later, we’ll head to uninhabited Grimsey Island, a small island straddling the Arctic Circle. Located about 25 miles (40 km) off the mainland, the island harbors a variety of bird species, including puffins, guillemots and gulls. After returning to the ship this evening, we set sail for Akureyri, Iceland’s second-largest city.
