Visit the beautiful village of Suðureyri village, where it's all about fish all the time. This is your chance to hear about life at the edge of the Arctic Circle and to see for yourself how this thriving community processes Iceland's ocean bounty.
Enjoy a taste of fresh seafood as you listen to local stories. Learn how Iceland's first-class export produce can be on your dinner plate in North America just 36 hours after leaving the icy-cold Atlantic Ocean. It might also surprise you to hear that sustainability is king here -- this small, forward-thinking village has an eye on the future at all times.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Some walking is required, mainly on paved flat surfaces but with some inclines and a few steps, as well as a few gravel paths and uneven surfaces. Approximate distance covered on foot is one mile. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion; outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. Wear sturdy non-skid walking shoes. The fish-processing plant may or may not be operating during your visit. Due to Ísafjörður's remoteness and the scarcity of professional guides, all guiding is handled by locals; some are not professional, but all have great experience in guiding and extensive knowledge of the area. Parents traveling with children under the age of 3 must rent a child's car seat from the tour operator; please see the Shore Excursions team on board. You cannot use your child's car seat from home in Iceland.
