了解 Seyðisfjörður

 

Seydisfjordur is a town of around 668 people in East Iceland, innermost of the fjord of the same name. Along with natural attractions, its annual LungA festival has gained it increased interest in later years.

Economy

The main economy of Seydisfjordur has largely been the fishing industry, but the town has seen increased tourism in later years. The town has a good harbour and the ferry Norraena is operated from there and sails over to Scandinavia. The town offers good services and has become increasingly popular for its annual LungA art festival.

Culture & history

Old and charming wooden houses are notable in the town and the country's oldest powerplant, Fjardasel, built in 1913, is located in the vicinity, near to many beautiful waterfalls. The town was used for British and American army bases during WWII and the remains from this activity can still be seen.

The town has a vibrant cultural scene. Artist Dieter Roth has a residence and art studio in Seydisfjordur and the town further hosts a telecommunications museum, an arts centre, one of the two cinemas in East Iceland, and, last but not least, the annual LungA festival.

The LungA art festival is  July 14-18 and features workshops, exhibitions, a fashion show etc. as well as concerts.  Many of Iceland's top musicians have participated in the festival, among them Retro Stefson, Samaris, Mugison, Ojba Rasta and Hermigervill.

Nature & nearby surroundings

There are several beautiful waterfalls in the area that are worth visiting, such as near Fjardarsel and in Fjardara river. The rock stratum Nedri Stafur, at an altitude of over 300 m is considered an absolute must-see for travelers of the area.

No less important, around 17 km from the town, is the nature reserve Skalanes, covering around 1250 hectars and featuring 47 different bird species and 150 plant species, along with many interesting geoloccal formations. Reindeers wander the area and seals and porpoises frequent the sand shores. Over 90 archeological sites can further be found in the area and impressive mountains are nearby. The nature reserve also features a nice guesthouse. 

Vesturdalur (not to be confused with the one in North Iceland) is further popular for a hike. It has several nice waterfalls as well as archelocial sites and remains of former settlement. Mt. Bjolfur is also popular for hiking, and gives a good view of the area.
