East Iceland

Glistening iceberg lagoons, imposing glaciers, beautiful hikes, and Iceland's artistic hub

East Iceland, Iceland Travel Guide

Come for:

  • The spectacular Jökulsárlón and Fjallsárlón glacial lagoons, filled with icebergs that glisten like diamonds in the sun
  • The natural beauty of Skaftafell National Park, including breathtaking views of the Svinafellsjokull and Skaftafellsjökull glaciers, beautiful hikes up Kristinartindar mountain and the famous Svartifoss (Black Falls), a beautiful waterfall surrounded by black lava columns
  • The wet sands of Stokksnes beach, offering near-perfect reflections of the majestic Vestrahorn mountain on a still day
  • Awe-inspiring views of rhyolite peaks hiking the Dyrfjöll mountains
  • Enjoying local music and festivals at Seyðisfjörður, the country’s creative hub for artists
  • Exploring Iceland’s mysticism at Álfaborg, a rock formation thought to be the City of the Hidden People (Huldufólk) such as elves, fairies and trolls

Do not expect:

  • Rushing from one site to another – things move at a much slower pace here
  • To completely escape the tourist crowds – the sites in the Southeast (Jökulsárlón and Skaftafell) have become quite popular over the years
