walking – local people – history

A fun and easy walk in the little village of Fáskrúðsfjörður with a local person.

Fáskrúðsfjörður carries the nickname “Little French town” for a good reason. It used to serve as a fishing station for the French during the late 19th century, and early 20th and the connection to France is ever strong. Every street sign in town displays both street name both in Icelandic and French and Bastille day (the French independents day) is a flag day in Fáskrúðsfjörður. There are also several buildings in the town that serve as a reminder of the time the French dwelled there and are closely connected to the town’s history and culture. In this walking tour, you’ll join a local guide and explore the history of the beautiful little fishing village. At the end of the tour you’ll visit a local home for some light refreshments.
