Cruise ship stop Seydisfjordur, August 8:00-5:00

Looking for suggestions on things to do or see on our one day visit. We do not want to do any of the ships excursions. Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions but I’m looking for more personal experiences, possibly private guide recommendations. I have Google, checked TripAdvisor, viator and get your guide.

As it's a ferry port from Denmark it'll have a TIC. Google them, then email or call, see what they suggest. The website is visit seydisfjordur

I am not much help with this. We stayed in Seydisfjordur and loved it, but didn't do much in town. We walked a couple of shops and got coffee, saw the rainbow street and the little church at the end, but that was in for in town. We had a cottage out on the fjord and just hung out there.

We spent the night there (it was raining). It's a cute town to walk around. (It's very small.) There is a very nice waterfall to see right off the ship. But if you want to see Puffins, I would recommend getting yourself to Bakkagerdi. We did not go there, but in talking to people along our trip route (we are just ending 2 weeks in Iceland today), it was very easy to see Puffins there....much closer than at the Latrabjarg Cliffs (where we went). Then you might enjoy a soak in the Vok hotsprings, near the town of Egilsstadir, (also something that we didn't do but kinda wish we had). Those are 2 things that we missed on our driving vacation that I wish we had made time for.

Enjoy!!!

To locals' surprise Wed 5 July 2023 it was snowing heavily (first since middle of May) in the mountain pass (nowhere else) to Egilsstadir. Our Windstar ship tour bus made it to the Hengifoss Waterfall hike, 1.5 hours moderate up, improved but not paved trail. Lovely (very high fall, but less volume) but not quite as impressive as South Coast or Golden Circle waterfalls. One person slipped and fell on way down, treatment not needed.
