Havarí Hostel

At the farm, Karlsstaðir in Berufjörður Berglind Häsler and Svavar Pétur Eysteinsson welcome travelers to rent out the old farmhouse that was built in 1927 and was renovated last year. The view from the house is spectacular as is the nature all around. The family bought the farm in spring 2014, they left Reykjavík to chase their long-lived dream about making food, art, and music in the country under the name Havarí. The house sleeps eight in four rooms. There are many hiking paths in the area. The next town is Breiðdalsvík, 20 km, and Djúpivogur 40 km.

Havarí produces Bulsur, vegan/vegetarian sausages and Sveitasnakk, chips made from rutabaga/swedes. Svavar and Berglind make music with the bands Skakkamanage and Prins Póló.

You can preorder Bulsufeast and concert in the old barn.

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.
