Tinna Millenium Forest

In the summer of 2000 a forest project was started in Eydalir by Landnyrðingsskólbakkar. It was a part of the National Millenium Forest Project. The area is ideal for walks and other outdoor activities. In the 1950s a considerable forestry took place on the banks of river Tinna in Valley Norðurdalur, approx. 1 km. off the national highway. At Staðarborg in Valley Breiðdalur a green region has also been established resulting in agreeable outdoor- and walking grounds.

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.
