Grænafell

The haven of Mt. Grænafell by Reyðarfjörður has served as the prime location for local outdoor activities for a number of years. At the top of the mountain a beautiful lake awaits the visitor and a spectacular gorge carves the landscape beside the fell. A paradise of fine bushes at the foot of the mount completes the icing on the cake. The tiny forest is adorned by planted trees, brooklets and extensive rocks fragments from the cliff, reminiscent of dwellings from the land of fairy tales. The area has been made easily accessible by marked hiking trails.

Helgustaðanáma

Helgustaðanáma is an old Icelandic spar mine, located above the trail leading from Eskifjörður til Vödlavík inlet. It is partially open to visitors and there is good walking path leading up to it.

All removal of the spar is forbidden and the area is a protected nature reserve.

The Icelandic spar is made out of especially pure cristalls of calsit. Characteristic for the Icelandic spar in Helgustaðanáma is its size, purity and clarity. The spar was used in telescopes and other technical instruments in times gone by. Icelandic spar can be found in several stone collections and geological museums around the world.

Völvuleiði

Situated some distance above the highway connecting the villages Reyðarfjörður and Eskifjörður is the burial mound of a prophetess said to be a guardian angel of the area. According to legend, as long as her bones remain intact - and the cairn indicating the site is maintained - the prophetess will continue to fulfil her protective role. Thus, in 1627 as the Algerian pirates who had previously pillaged the South and the Westmann Islands, approached the eastern shore, the cunning lady produced a fog so massive that the scoundrels were compelled to take to sea and abandon their lugubrious plans of manhunt and massacre.

The French hospital, l´hopital francais

For 70 years,the French Hospital was located in the former agglommeration of Hafnarnes in Fáskskrúðsfjörður, having been moved by sea from the village of Búðir in 1939 . Originally it was built in 1903 as a hospital for the French sailors who frequented the banks off the shore during that period. The declining building was moved back to Fáskrúðsfjörður in the autumn of 2010 for restauration purposes.

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.
