DAY TOUR

START YOUR DAY in Egilsstaðir and drive towards Seyðisfjörður. Where you start climbing the slopes onto Fjarðarheiði pass, you can stop and walk up to Fardagafoss waterfall. You can even get behind - it is said that every wish made behind Fardagafoss comes true. After your hike, continue to Seyðisfjörður for a stroll around the old town, with its rainbow street and the Blue Church, as well as the Skaftfell Centre for Visual Art. Your dinner might be at Norð Austur Sushi or the Restaurant of Hotel Aldan.

DAY TOUR

DRIVE THROUGH the village in Reyðarfjörður, stop at least for the fabulous view from the scenic point above Hólmanes peninsula. You might even picnic or take a short hike there. Next, the geothermal swimming pool at Eskifjörður offers its superb mountain scenes. You could pack up a lunch at the supermarket, then drive to the former Iceland spar mine at Helgustaðir. End the day with dinner alongside the fishing relics at Randúlfs Seahouse.

DAY TOUR

DRIVE TO Neskaupstaður. Visit Skorrahestar farm for either a guided hike or horseback ride. The old baiting shack Beituskúrinn would then be perfect for lunch and a view over the bay. Enjoy a relaxing walk around town before having dinner at Hildibrand Hotel.
