Stapavík

The historical trading point of Krosshöfði, by Stapavík inlet, lies in a magnificent setting. The trail to the inlet starts above the farmstead of Unaós, leading to the river Selfljót, continuing along its banks to the mouth at Krosshöfði., The trail continues still to the cliffs of Stapavík. In the early 20th century, this trading point was important for the broad valley of Fljótsdalshérað, and goods were brought ashore in the inlet until the late1940s when a road was built over the mountain range to Borgarfjörður Eystri which offers excellent harbor facilities.

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.
