A village shaped by the wealth of the sea
Eskifjörður is a charming seaside village in the middle of the eastern Fjords. Eskifjörður became an official trading post in 1789 and has been a commercial centre ever since.
The village's culture and industry have been shaped by the sea for a long time. A walk around town is recommended, noting the historical buildings and piers.
A visit to the Maritime Museum will add to the experience. The attractive seafarers lodge Randulfssjóhús remains unchanged since 1890, showing the ways of yesteryear's fisheries trade. You can even try tasting the shark and dried fish still produced there.View East Iceland
