Brimnes

A 10 km. drive from the Seyðisfjörður town centre brings the visitor to farm Selsstaðir on the north coast of the fjord. A walking trail leads from the farm to Brimnes at the mouth of the fjord. This was for centuries one of the major fishing centres in East Iceland. Traces of old buildings are still to be seen, along with a lighthouse stands at Brimnes.

A walk out Brimnes in fine weather is an unforgettable experience.

Austurland

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.
