Bustarfell

Bustarfell is one of the few remaining turf farms in East Iceland. It is located in Hofsárdalur in Vopnafjörður. The farmhouses were originally erected in 1770 but has undergone many changes through the years. The lodgings were inhabited until 1966. Since then they have been under the protection of the National Museum. Bustarfell is a very active hertiage museum today and on special occasions worksops are set afoot to commemorate ways and workmanship of days of yore.. Located next to the farm is the "Croft café". A hiking path takes visitors to the "Stone of the Elf lady", the source of a legendary tale.

Gljúfurárdalur

Gljúfurárdalur is a vale west of Hellisheiði by Vopnafjörður. A hiking trail leads through it and a wiew point allows for a perfect view of the imposing waterfall Neðrifoss. A marked trail leads towards the ocean, where ruins from early settlement can be visited. The surroundings form a propicious natural harbor and vestiges of ancient fishing settlements - as well as the saga of the hero of days gone by, Þorsteinn uxafótur - lend historical importance to this scenic shore.

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.
