Rauðubjörg

The cliffs of Rauðubjörg at Barðsnes in Norðfjörður are endowed with a constant glow as if they reflect ceaseless sunshine. The name means "Red cliffs" which is appropriate since rhyolite is a dominating ingredient.

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.
