Fjords, Glaciers and Reindeer
East Iceland is a magical region of natural phenomena, with glaciers, forests, bird cliffs, vast expanses, deserts, majestic mountains and narrow fjords. In every valley or fjord you can find cascading waterfalls and beautiful rivers. Proud hordes of reindeer roam the highlands and mountains during the summer season but seek lower in winter time. The ocean air and highland scents give you a fresh feeling that makes you want to spend even more time out in the wilderness!
All year around you can enjoy fine local dining, comfortable and modern hotels and guesthouses, fabulous highland experiences, regional festivals, museums, theatre, concerts and cultural centers. The ferry from Europe docks at the town of Seydisfjordur. Up to five daily flights between Reykjavik and Egilsstadir International Airport, the main hub of the area, enables visitors to make the East a starting point for a memorable holiday. Come and see for yourself; experience and enjoy the culture and beauty of our region!
