Port information

Port of Seydisfjordur (c) Port of Seydisfjordur


Seydisfjordur harbour provides an ideal destination for cruise ships. The peaceful village, shaped by Norwegian enterpreneurs over a century ago, lies sheltered by dramatic snow-flecked mountains.

The colorful, Norwegian-style wooden houses render this village unique in Iceland, and walking trails around town, out along the coast, or by the Fjardará River allow for many plesurable and relaxing experiences. Seydisfjördur is distinguished by its close proximity to wild nature – some might even consider it on the verge of the uninhabitable. The climate and its harsh tendencies have shaped those living here.Seydisfjordur is home to approximately 700 residents, who have traditionally lived off fishing. In recent years, however, tourism has growing. Seyðisfjörður is one of Lonely Planet’s top pick in Iceland. A part of Ben Stiller's movie " The secret life of Walter Mitty" was filmed in Seydisfjordur, a YouTube clip from the film can be found here below.
