Iceland Ring Road: an unexpected art exhibition

Seyðisfjörður is situated at the end of a long fjord. It has some lovely wooden houses and is also the port where the ferries to Denmark and the Faroe Islands leave from.

We had lunch at the Skaftfell Bistro, a very cosy, lively place that hosts the Centre for Visual Arts. The town has a community of artists, musicians and craftspeople. I was delighted to discover that there was an exhibition on the upper floor of the bistro, something I had not expected to find outside Reykjavik. The exhibition Koma, is on from 28 January until 2nd April and is free to enter. A variety of media were used. One wall had a display of 35 photographs of dogs. There were paintings and prints, video and installations using several media.

Guide books recommend visiting in summer but if you want to stay here, book well in advance as the ferry makes it a busy place.
