Siglufjörður is the northernmost town in Iceland with a population of 1,300 people and is named after the fjord where it is nestled. Siglufjörður is a scenic, quiet town surrounded by marvellous towering mountains. Until 1967 when Strákagöng, the first underground tunnel in Iceland, was built, the town was isolated from the rest of Iceland during winter due to heavy snow conditions. The importance of the year-round access was mainly due to the fact that Siglufjörður is one of Iceland´s most prosperous fishing towns. The people are very friendly and helpful, making it a very welcoming community in a tranquil environment.
