Tverárgil canyon

The hiking path runs along Þverá river in Þverá canyon. The canyon is exceptionally beautiful as you can see colorful rock formations from an old volcano, a pleasant contrast to the otherwise dark rocks of the Smjörfjöll mountains.

There is a rich bird life in this area, especially Icelandic highland birds. The view is magnificent over the Hofsá valley and out to sea.

The path is about two hours long and is a little bit upward. Therefore we put two shoes on the difficulty of the hike.

The starting point of the walk is above the Þverá river on rd. 919 - Sunnudalur road.

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.
