Koreksstadavigi

Kóreksstaðavígi is a beautiful rock of basalt columns. There the Viking Kórekur is said to have fought his enemies to the death and been buried at the site. One drives past Hjaltalundur and takes the road towards the farm Kóreksstaðir. Park your car in an area close to the sign by the gate leading to the farm. Walk on towards the Kóreksstaðavígi where you will find a cylinder with the visitors' log and stamp. Standing on its top is an enjoyable 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.
