Eiriksstadahneflar

Walk on from the sign by the river Þverá south of Eiríksstaðir farm and on to Fremri Hnefill - top (947 m) where you will find the cylinder with the visitors' log and stamp. From there one can cross over to the top of Ytri Hnefill (922m) and down to Eiríksstaðir farm. It is also nice to walk over to the ruins of the abandoned (since 1875) Hneflasel farm and between the two mountains on the way back to Jökuldalur valley.

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.
