By morning, we reach the fjord town of Siglufjörður, once the hub of the global herring industry, which is now enjoying a rebirth in popularity. Our first stop is the award-winning Herring Era Museum, located on the town’s vibrant harborfront. Cultural Discovery: Here, you'll have time to wander the multiple exhibits illustrating the fascinating history of this important industry before watching a live herring salting demonstration! Later, we’ll head to 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.
