Silversea Luxury Cruises To ESKIFJORDUR

ESKIFJORDUR

"Almost swallowed up by the looming forms of Eskja and Hólmatindur mountains, the quiet fishing village of Eskifjordur minds its own business in the midst of some of Iceland's most extroverted natural scenery. A place where the wind's gentle whistle and the whir of fishing rods unspooling are the only sounds you hear as you stroll, Eskifjordur is a peaceful introduction to eastern Iceland's fjord lands.

Get lucky, and you'll witness the scenic setting bathed in an otherworldly, achingly-beautiful light - as daylight trickles away and emerald plumes spread across the night's sky. Natural wonders abound here, whether it's the streams that gurgle, the finger-like reach of the Reyðarfjörður fjord, or the geothermal pools that bubble with warmth from the depths of the earth. Hólmatindur mountain lends the area's scenery evocative drama, soaring from the waters like a snow-speckled pyramid. Ambitious hikers who conquer the peak will be richly rewarded with magnificent widescreen panoramas across the stunning landscape.  The views are no less mesmerising from ground level, with pretty, cherry-red fishing huts adding a charming accent to the landscape. Indulge in gentler walks among the cacophony of birdlife, or take in cultural pursuits like the Maritime Museum, and exposed spar mine nearby. Fishing is a way of life here, and the glass-smooth fjord waters hold a rich bounty for keen anglers. Try for yourself - to witness first hand how the fish practically jump onto your line - or leave it to the experts and taste the produce that Eskifjordur is best known for - shark meat and pickled herring."

A Guided Stroll around the town of Eskifjördur

Eskifjörður is a charming seaside village, showing the Norwegian influences. See the line of piers and other waterfront structures, along with colourfully painted houses, give the town an immensely charming character.

You will then walk through the town having the chance to speak with the locals and stop at a local stone collection. End the tour with a photo stop by the Maritime museum, and from there it is just a short walk back to the ship. Here you have the opportunity to take the last stroll to the ship, or stay behind and visit the museum (entrance to the Maritime museum is not included.). Enjoy a sample of local pastries along the way.
