Siglufjörður was one of my personal favorite places that we visited, as we had the opportunity to both read Snowblind, which is set there, in addition to meeting an S&T Alumni. To enter the town we had to go through a tunnel several kilometers long, but once you are through it is stunning. The town rests on the west side of the fjord, which is surrounded by snow covered peaks. The town itself was small but very quaint, with the mayor Gunnar Birgisson being a very charismatic figure. As he was the alumni that we met up with in addition to being mayor, he gave us a tour of the town. We were informed about the communities economical issues, their current businesses, and the nature of living in such a remote location. Following the presentation and tour Gunnar took us to a local restaurant to appreciate the scenery.
