Seyðisfjörður

The artistic capital of the East

With its beautifully preserved wooden buildings, the town of Seyðisfjörður is one of Iceland’s most picturesque spots. The closest Icelandic port to the Faroe Islands and Europe, the town’s heyday was at the turn of the 20th century when it was the centre of the Norwegian fishing and herring processing industry.

In fact, the oldest part of the town is even built using the Norwegian-style of architecture.

History and architecture aside, Seyðisfjörður is known in Iceland as an artistic hub in the country. The town is home to many creative types, hosts many foreign artists in residencies, and hosts an annual arts festival each July called LungA.

The Blue Church summer concerts are held nearly every Wednesday throughout the summer. During the summer there are weekly ferry trips between Seyðisfjörður and Europe.
