A surprising treat. Lots of memorabilia in separate original building museums. The photos of the sardine factories were amazing and educational. You got a sense of how people lived in this factory town, and the disposable income this new business brought.

This was an amazing experience and we thought Artic Sea Tours were excellent. The port of Dalvik is a pretty half hour drive from Akureyri along the fjord. We were provided with warm all-in-one suits but were glad of our own hat & gloves. We first saw porpoises and then got close to two humpbacks. Hot chocolate and cookies were handed out before we headed back to port. We also had the chance to do some fishing and caught cod and wolf-fish which were expertly filleted and cooked for us. Would love to return and do it again some day.
