Eyjabakki

In the vicinity of majestic Mt. Snæfell and the imposing Vatnajökull glacier you´ll find the rolling flatland Eyjabakkar; a green oasis in the otherwise scarcely vegetated highland. This is a resting niche for some 14 000 geeses before setting off for their long flight southward bound. This area is suitable for all kinds of outdoor leisure. The Fljótsdalshérad Touring Club has a chalet at Mt. Geldingafell beyond the river Blöndukvísl.

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.
