Sunday hike every Sunday

Every Sunday at 10 am the Touring Club of Fljotsdalsherad offers a 3-5 hour long walk in the surroundings of Egilsstadir. The meeting point is Tjarnarás 8 in Egilsstadir, the Touring Club´s office.

From October 1st to April 30th the club does not have an official schedule on where to go on each hike but we decide on the spot and it usually depends on the weather.

We encourage you to participate. You meet new people, exercise your body and keep the mind fresh, something we all need, especially during those darker months.

Price is 500 ISK + gas cost if needed.

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.
