East Fjords of Iceland - Seydisfjordur

Seydisfjordur is a colorful town filled with art and history, surrounded by mountains. Waterfall overload comes to mind when thinking of this area in Iceland’s east. A stay in the centre of the town will surround you in spectacular cliff faces with magnificent falls.

One of Seyðisfjörður’s main streets is Ránagata. It’s a pedestrian street lined with unique buildings that make it look like a movie set. Something is interesting to look at in every inch of this area, where a rainbow painted walking path leads to a quaint blue church.

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.
