Hafnarhólmi

The "Hafnarhólmi" in Borgarfjörður Eystri is an area highly suitable for birdwatching. On the premises, there is a staircase leading up to a platform where one can get closer to puffins and the birds of the sea than ever imaginable. The puffins arrive in April and disappear overnight around August 15th. Underway to Hafnarhólmi one enjoys good close-ups of vivid birdlife and the arctic tern nests along the shore and on banks of the river. The harbor proudly raises the blue flag indicating that the inhabitants are respectful and attentive towards their surroundings.

East Iceland

Towns & Villages

Each town in East Iceland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages the influence of North European neighbours is 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 latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
