Randulff’s fisherman-lodge is a beautifully preserved shore-building. It was built by Peter Randulff in 1890 and served as a station for landing and processing herring that was caught in the fjord until 1930. The house preserves artefacts and the lingering atmosphere from the days when herring fishery was a way of life in the Eastern Fjords. You can try the traditional shark meat and dried fish at the sea house, both produced in Eskifjordur and, is widely renownedÂ being the best in Iceland. You can even rent a boat at the dock for recreational fishing within the fjord where cod and haddock can be caught.
