Amazing Þerribjörg Cliffs in Austurland, East Iceland

Þerribjörg Cliffs are very colorful sea cliffs in Austurland. A marked walking path takes you down to Þerribjörg, east of Hellisheiði Eystri, where the rhyolite is at its most beautiful. The walk is fairly difficult and long, but well worth it for experienced hikers. This is an ancient volcanic area.

This is an amazing place that not many visitors know about

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.
