No destination in Iceland offers a quaint Scandinavian village vibe quite like Seydisfjordur—a veritable artists’ colony set along the far eastern fjords of the island. Your first view of the small town will be from above, as you slide between hairpin turns on the steep journey down into the sawtooth-shaped valley. Travelers arriving in Iceland from Europe by ferry will start their trip here, but for most visitors it feels like a remote secret known only to locals who come for fjord kayaking, concerts in the pale blue church, the artists’ galleries, and throngs of puffins on the sea cliffs.
