Bustarfell

Bustarfell is one of the few remaining turf farms in East Iceland. It is located in Hofsárdalur in Vopnafjörður. The farmhouses were originally erected in 1770 but have undergone many changes over the years. The lodgings were inhabited until 1966. Since then they have been under the protection of the National Museum. Bustarfell is a very active heritage museum today, and on special occasions, workshops are set afoot to commemorate ways and workmanship of days of yore. Located next to the farm is the "Croft café." A hiking path takes visitors to the "Stone of the Elf lady," the source of a legendary tale.

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
