Town of Isafjordur in the Westfjords of Iceland
Isafjordur, Iceland travel is all about the history. Isafjordur's historic town Old Town dates back to the 18th century. Start in the Tangagata neighbourhood to discover the colourful homes painted red or blue (the colours of Iceland's flag). Also, visit the Westfjords Heritage Museum for nautical exhibits, the Culture House (formerly a hospital) for daily life displays and the Seamen's Monument.
A short drive from Isafjordur takes you to two enchanting fishing villages: Flateyri and Sudureyri. Flateyri is known for its quirky museums, including the Nonsense Museum, which showcases a collection of sugar cubes, police hats and matchbooks. There's also a small shop, a restaurant and a beautiful white-sand beach across the fjord. In Sudureyri you can feed cod in a lagoon, visit a fisherman's hut by the coast and tour the famed seafood trail.
Swimmingly good food awaits in Isafjordur, where seafood is the main dining staple – and with good reason. After all, this is a fishing town. Visit Vid Pollinn for Icelandic delights like dried fish (hardfiskur) with gorgeous views of the shore, Husid for Icelandic fish and chips and Tjoruhusid for a buffet of seasonal, freshly caught fish.
When you go to Isafjordur, Iceland make time for local shopping. Look for markets selling leather made from salmon skin in Fiskbud Sjavarfangs, Icelandic jumpers and knitted socks in Karitas, and second-hand books and memorabilia in The Old Bookstore, Iceland's oldest bookshop. You can also just saunter around town and discover little-known nooks to call your own.
