Berunes HI Hostel

With a spectacular mountain range on one side and a tranquil seafront on the other. Berunes truly has the best of both worlds. Berunes offers beautiful vistas and unbeatable hiking oppurtunities. Stay at the charming Berunes HI Hostel, located on the north side of Berufjörður fjord. Here, you will find a large collection of books, as well as free Wi-Fi. Relax, enjoy the remote location, and treast yourself to the renowned pancake breakfast at Gestastofan next door. Not only is Berunes a fantastic place to stay close to the ring road, but also a tranquil destination in and of itself.

Next to the hostel Berunes is a camp site, sheltered with growth. There are two areas, one is for the smaller tents and the other is for the travel campers and mobile homes.

The campsite at Berunes is rather small, quiet and offers good shelter from wind. Included in the rate (2017: 1500 kr for adult 12y+) there is access to warm shower and a small kitchen. The cost of electricity is 600 kr.

The George P.L: Walker geology centre Breiðdalsvík

The geologist Dr. George P. L. Walker was one of the first to study the geology of the East, especially the Breiðdalseldstöð, an ancient volcano, which has not been active during historic times. Walker studied the geology of the East of Iceland with great enthusiasm, spending many summers in the area, often along with his wife Hazel and some of his students.

Walker was especially conspicuous in the fifties and sixties. Many of the older folks of the area still remember him driving around in his Land Rover and camping out the whole summer with his wife. The work and the stories of this extraordinary character can be seen in an ongoing exhibition at Gamla Kaupfélagshúsið in Breiðdalsvík.

East Iceland

Towns & Villages

Each town in East Iceland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages the influence of North European neighbours is 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 latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
