Eating at the End of the World

The bright yellow house is the restaurant and the red one, the café in Siglufjörður

This former herring centre is set in a beautiful fjord and is a very popular place to hike from and enjoy the extraordinary birdlife and nature. The pristine beauty of the landscape is matched only by the atmosphere of the town, where there is much to see and do.

Hannes Boy is the bright yellow building right on the harbour, just a few feet from the boats, landing their fresh fish. Inside, the wood-beamed restaurant, with its lantern wall lights, wooden tables and chairs is bright and cheerful. The menu includes fish and lamb and you’re guaranteed a delicious meal in the inspiring atmosphere of this warm and welcoming fishing town.

This is a lively place—especially on Friday and Saturday nights, with its live bands. It’s a great spot for lunch, for getting to know the local people and enjoying their lifestyle. – HÞHannes Boy 310710_DSC8461
