Seydisfjordur is a small village in the East fjords of Iceland. Seydisfjordur is surrounded by lush mountains on three sides and there are plenty waterfalls around the town. Seydisfjordur is also well known for its old wooden buildings. With the recent demise of the local fish processing plant, the village has shifted its economy to tourism. It remains a significant fishing port on the east coast of Iceland. The town was settled by Norwegian fishermen in 1848. These settlers also built many of the existing wooden buildings in the village. Seydisfjordur was used as a base for British/American forces during WWII.
