The port town of Hirtshals is on the coast of Skagerrak on the island of Vendsyssel-Thy, at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark. Known for its fishing and ferry port, the town's economy is heavily reliant on the fishing industry and on tourism, with many houses available to rent during the summer months. The ferries that use the town's port bring the tourists into the town which benefit the local shops. Particularly large numbers of Norwegians visit Hirtshals to shop all year round. One of Europe's largest aquariums, The Nordsoen Oceanarium, is located in the town and has over 70 different species in its collection.
The harbour is full of activities and the ambience is authentic. When visiting Hirtshals enjoy the natural surroundings which are ideal for many outdoor activities.
From the port, ferries can be taken to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.
Seydisfjordur is regarded by many as one of Iceland's prettiest town in the main because it is the only town in Iceland where it is possible to see so many well preserved wooden buildings and led the poet Matthias Johannessen to call Seydisfjordur a “pearl enclosed in a shell.” The town can trace its origins back to foreign merchants, mainly from Denmark, who began trading in the town in the middle of the 19th century. However, the town's fortunes and its growth really took off when the Icelandic Herring fishery was established by the Norwegians between 1870 and 1900. The Norwegians built up a number of herring fishing facilities, and in a matter of years the little community grew into a booming town.
The long calm, deep fjord of Seydisfjordur twists and turns for 17 km from its mouth to the head of the fjord, where the town shelters beneath Mt. Strandartindur and Mt. Bjolfur.
